Research Highlights

  • Each summer, the Veterinary Medical Student Research Training Program (VMSRTP) offers first and second year professional DVM students stipends to conduct veterinary and biomedical research.
  • The CVM has cloned more species than any other academic institution (deer, cat, cow, horse, pig, and goat) and leads the way in conservation genomics.
  • The CVM recently dedicated a new extension to the Veterinary Medical Research Building. It provides space for 26 labs, 30 faculty offices, and 22 post doctoral offices.
  • The newly established CVM Postdoctoral Research Awards are a collaborative effort between the Dean's Office, various CVM departments, Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Lab (TVMDL), and Agri- Life Research, to provide funding in a competitive manner to post doctorate students.
  • Similarly, the recently initiated CVM Graduate Research Awards is a competitive program in which students must develop proposals for grant applications that are reviewed by professors inside and outside of the program.
  • The Texas A&M Institute for Preclinical Studies (TIPS) is housed on the CVM campus and many collaborative research efforts are underway, such as incorporating the use of spontaneous animal models into clinical trials of new drugs and devices.
  • A number of labs and centers conducting research in various disciplines are housed at the CVM, such as the Clinical Pathology Lab, the DNA Technologies Core Lab, Image Analysis Lab, the Reproductive Science Lab, the Sayes Group Lab, the Center for Environmental and Rural Health (CERH), and the National Center for Foreign Animal and Zoonotic Disease (FAZD).
