Our research is focused within three groups:
The following themes underpin research in all three groups:
We have excellent laboratory facilities across all our sites, providing our academics with equipment and techniques ranging from flow cytometry, real-time PCR, HPLC and gas chromatography to video recording suites, thermal imaging and operant technology.
Our academics also have access to a larger range of research facilities belonging to the Faculty of Medical and Veterinary Sciences as a whole.
Our three research groups are supported by a dedicated team of research technicians, and managed by the Research Support Officer (RSO), Chris Whiting.
The aim of the RSO is to facilitate collaborative links between School staff and the wider University, to facilitate research throughout the School, and to advise staff on a wide range of research-related issues.
Kate Allen describes how a unique research-technique, using a horse treadmill together with a telemeted endoscope, is being used to research poor performance in individual horses.
