Our department covers both basic and applied scientific disciplines, including anatomy, embryology, stem cell biology, physiology, biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, quantitative genetics, bioinformatics, nutrition, clinical nutrition, veterinary imaging, veterinary clinical pathology, companion animal internal medicine, companion animal surgery, companion animal clinical oncology, companion animal cardiology, and companion animal clinical neurology.
In addition to this we have 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 and human health and disease. Our aim is to be among the best public workplaces in Denmark.
