The Merial Veterinary Scholars Program provides an opportunity for veterinary schools to expose students in their first two years of veterinary medical school to biomedical research.
The school's centers of excellence foster faculty collaborations, identify funding, oversee scientific projects, and develop new knowledge. Centers may focus on a particular species group such as companion animals, horses, food animals or wildlife. Health issues and multidisciplinary themes may also define a center: food safety; vectorborne, tropical and other infectious diseases; orthopedics and more. Some centers run entirely on private donations.
