UGA CVM Office of Research & Graduate Affairs

The Office of Research & Graduate Affairs

The College is an integral component of active life sciences and biomedical research programs that exist at the University of Georgia and faculty collaborate with researchers in numerous departments throughout the University.

This office administers research and graduate training activities in the College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Harry W. Dickerson serves as Associate Dean, Research and Graduate Affairs, as well as Director of the Veterinary Medical Experiment Station (VMES).

Dr. Dickerson provides leadership and oversight for the extramural and intramural research programs as well as graduate student training programs. He promotes research development by working with College faculty to enhance research funding, and serves as College liaison with funding agencies, the University of Georgia Research Foundation, and the Office of the Vice President for Research.

The research program of the College is divided into two major components depending on the source of funding: an intramural program that includes the Veterinary Medical Experiment Station and Veterinary Medical Agricultural Research, and, an extramural program comprised of a diverse group of federal (NIH, USDA, NSF) and private agencies.

Research and training programs are supported by excellent laboratory facilities. The Veterinary Teaching Hospital and Diagnostic Laboratory are available to support research activities. The College’s state-of-the-art Animal Health Research Center provides facilities for studies of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases. Additional facilities include:
