Research Building

Research and graduate education programs are supported by numerous individual laboratories operated by dedicated scientists who have as their first priority the acquisition and transfer of knowledge. Modern equipment is available, and state-of-the-art technology is constantly being introduced. Centralized facilities include the Veterinary Medical Park for care and use of large animals, a Laboratory Animals Resources and Research facility, an Image Analysis Laboratory, a Flow Cytometry Laboratory, and a Biomedical Media Resources Center with computer laboratories. In addition, resources of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital and the Diagnostic Laboratory are available to support research projects. A recently completed building construction program provides modern research laboratory space sufficient to meet research needs extending into the twenty-first century. The Texas Veterinary Medical Center shares the Medical Sciences Library facility with the Texas A&M University College of Medicine, located across the street. Easy, all-weather access to both the library and colleagues in the College of Medicine is provided by a tunnel. The Medical Sciences Library currently houses more than 120,000 volumes, including more than 1,800 serial titles. Full library services are available, including computerized literature searches, interlibrary loans, and a dedicated professional staff.
