Veterinary Pathobiology

The Department of Veterinary Pathobiology provides contemporary and state-of-the-art instruction and research for the disciplines of bacteriology, immunology, parasitology, pathology, virology, epidemiology and public health. The Department is the proud home of the National Center for Veterinary Parasitology, the Director of the University’s Animal Resource Unit, and faculty associated with the Oklahoma Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory.
Departmental faculty participate in research sponsored by the NIH, USDA and private industry focused on infectious diseases important in animals and people. The department is actively engaged in training the next generation of veterinarians, scientists, diagnostic pathologists and parasitologists. We also publish basic and applied works and present our findings at scientific and educational platforms throughout the world. Further information regarding the training programs is available on the OSU Pathology Residency Overview.

Physiological Sciences

Members of the Department of Physiological Sciences conduct cutting edge research in veterinary and human health, exemplifying the One-Health concept, and are responsible for teaching the foundational medical disciplines of the structural sciences (gross, developmental, and comparative anatomy, and histology), systems physiology,  and the influence and actions of xenobiotic chemicals on the body  (pharmacology and toxicology).  Areas of research strength and broad impact include innovative cancer treatments, interdisciplinary toxicology, metabolic disease, aging, comparative exercise physiology, infectious respiratory disease, regenerative medicine, and neurotoxicology.

Veterinary Clinical Sciences

The Veterinary Clinical Sciences department plays a crucial role in the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. The VCS faculty train veterinary students through hands-on experience and provide the highest quality of care to both clients and patients. In addition to training veterinary students, there are several residents and interns in various sections of the hospital who are mentored by VCS faculty.
