Comparative and Clinical Research is comprised of the following research areas:
The Comparative and Clinical Research group encompasses high quality comparative and clinical-based research. Clinical staff collaborate closely with basic scientists both in the School and the wider University to carry out clinically relevant research that will ultimately help animals. These studies are designed to further our knowledge of clinical disease and their treatments, and to bridge the gap between fundamental research and the clinical arena. Research by the group is enhanced by close collaborations with Infection and Immunity and Animal Welfare and Behaviour research groups at the School.
Ethically approved research studies utilise clinical cases from Langford Veterinary Services or other veterinary practices, after fully-informed owner consent is obtained.
