Leading the Way

Our Work Begins Now

When veterinarians and scientists come together in an environment that fosters innovation, discovery and healing, something powerful emerges: a new standard in veterinary care.

The discoveries we make to advance the care of animals also benefit human health. Many diseases in humans have naturally occurring counterparts in animals and, with a veterinary school, medical school, and strong bioengineering department, UC Davis is in a unique position to eff ect the rapid transfer of discovery and technology to animals and people. The new UC Davis Veterinary Medical Center will amplify our ability to collaborate and create new solutions for our patients that translate to human care.
