Advancements through Research

Welcome to the Office of Research and Graduate Studies of The Ohio State University, College of Veterinary Medicine! Our office provides administrative support for the research enterprise and graduate education mission of the College. Our team works with the faculty, staff, and students of the College to develop policies, strategies and tactics that elevate our College research and graduate education programs to the highest national levels of distinction, while continuing to meet the needs of the the citizens of Ohio.

The College of Veterinary Medicine is an important component of one of the most comprehensive health sciences centers in America and is central to creating a healthier world. Knowledge gained from our research improves the health of animals, assures the safety and quality of food animal products and contributes to the understanding of basic mechanisms of disease. Our interdisciplinary research programs bring together talented investigators from across the University, nationally and internationally, to share knowledge, skills and ideas in collaborative research projects, technology development, and commercialization. Our Office nurtures these partnerships across the College, University, and beyond.

Our discoveries provide a foundation for the education and training of professional veterinary students, veterinarians seeking advanced degrees, graduate students, post doctoral fellows, and research scientists. Our Office promotes best practices in advising graduate students, encourages strong recruitment efforts, and promotes an environment of excellence in graduate education. Our Graduate Program in Comparative and Veterinary Medicine provides exceptional opportunities for interdisciplinary training for our graduate students that are in tune with the needs of the government organizations, industries and universities that hire our graduates.

You are invited to visit our shared resources and services that support the breadth of research programs throughout the College and serve as a focus of cross-disciplinary research throughout the biomedical and agricultural community.

Always forward focused, we strive to use our discoveries today to provide the training, treatments, and preventive measures for tomorrow.
