Integrated in the Department is the University Hospital for Companion Animals (Universitetshospitalet for Familiedyr) located at Dyrlægevej 16, Frederiksberg. In addition to this we cover both basic and applied research areas central to veterinary and animal sciences with a strong tradition for international collaboration and collaboration with the industry. One of the outcomes of industry collaboration is an experimental fur animal farm at Rørrendegård, Taastrup.
Our mission is to work for the benefit of animals and humans, and we do this through research, teaching, innovation and propagation at a work place based on shared values.
Our vision is to build on strong and internationally recognized scientific disciplines and build new standards for cross-disciplinary research, education and innovation within animal health and disease. Our aim is to be among the best public workplaces in Denmark.
