The Office of Research and Graduate Affairs administers the College’s vast research and graduate training activities. This includes promoting research development, securing funding, and collaborating with units across campus such as the University of Georgia Research Foundation and the Office of the Vice President for Research. This office also oversees several of the College’s Master’s and PhD programs.
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 Animal Health Research Center provides facilities for studies of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases.
The office also provides support and resources for faculty by providing grant writing seminars, assistance with submitting grants, and other educational opportunities to advance the research enterprise of the College and individual faculty members. Faculty interested in specific programs should visit the College’s intranet.
