Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences

Enhancing Animal and Human Health through Service, Education, and Research

Student learning PCR

Whether for students or for the public, service lies at the center of the Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department. Our undergraduate students benefit by receiving an educational foundation that makes them competitive applicants to colleges of veterinary medicine, and our graduate students can sharpen their professional development with the help of a wealth of scientists willing to partner with them in research.

The Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department also has laboratories that help expand service to the public. Prompt and accurate diagnosis of animal health problems is the role of the South Dakota Animal Research and Diagnostic Laboratory, which is one of only 36 accredited veterinary diagnostic laboratories in the nation.

Another critical component of the Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences Department is a dynamic group of researchers who search for new ways to prevent and detect
