Department of Clinical Sciences

We conduct education and research in clinical and comparative veterinary medicine and animal care.


The department conducts high-quality clinical veterinary research. The research is conducted on the animal species horse, cattle, pig, dog, cat and rodent. The focus is on animal diseases, animal health and animal welfare in both the individual animal and animal populations, but the animals are also used as models for human diseases.

"I want to take research a step further than just an article. My research has led to companies, job opportunities, and to research resulting in products and drug candidates used in society," says Sara Mangsbo, a guest professor in comparative medicine at the Department of Clinical Sciences at SLU. The professorship is funded by Skriftställare Birgitta Carlsson Foundation.
