Research

At BVF, research is conducted on infectious diseases, food safety, effects of toxic substances and drugs in the environment, as well as on causes, development and control of animal diseases. The department's eight research areas are linked below. In several areas the research is carried out in collaboration with the National Veterinary Institute (SVA).

Bacteriology

The research profile of the section of bacteriology includes pathogenicity and diversity of bacteria that are important in veterinary medicine.

Streptococcus equi.

Pharmacology

Main objectives for the research activities are the use of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics to optimize dosing protocols for a sustainable animal welfare and improved doping control

Student

Immunology

Basic research with focus on immunobiology with special attention to the interaction of infectious and non-infectious agents with host immune defence parameters.

Parasitology

Sustainable control of parasitic worm infections (helminths) including some of which are zoonotic. Detailed studies on the population genetics and transmission biology of these parasites.

Pathology

Focused on connective tissue diseases involving the skeletal and circulatory systems in domestic animals, with a translational approach towards human medicine.
