What we offer
We offer graduate research training and didactic courses to D.V.M. students in the early years of their curriculum.
Our research strengths include neuroscience/neurophysiology and toxicology/pharmacology.
We are home to UF’s Center for Environmental and Human Toxicology, a hub for interrelated interests focusing on ecological and human health.
An unexpected ability of cells to bend metal determines the safety of silver nanowires — highly conductive nanomaterials a thousand times thinner than a human hair that are being used in next-generation touchscreens, a transnational team of scientists that includes UF researchers has found.
Research with CRISPR technology at the UF College of Veterinary Medicine has opened the door to studying any organism imaginable, allowing scientists to explore how toxicants affect humans, animals and the environment. Dr. Chris Vulpe of our department is a leader in this effort.
Drs. Hayward, Zubcevic and Tevosian have been awarded a new three-year grant from the Florida Department of Health to investigate the long-term impact of prenatal nicotine exposure on the gut microbiome.
Dr. Paul Davenport, a professor in our department, was interviewed for this article in Explore Magazine, UF’s Office of Research publication, about his research into respiratory disease and how it might shed light on the coronavirus.
