Strategic Planning

Dr. Alice Wong cultures stem cells in the J.D. Wheat Veterinary Orthopedic Research Laboratory at the University of California School of Veterinary Medicine.

Goal 2: Be at the forefront of high-impact transdisciplinary research.

The School’s faculty and staff are dedicated to the continued discovery of new knowledge to further advance the health of animals, people and the environment in a one health approach to improving overall health. Animals, people and the environment are inextricably linked and most health diseases or issues cross species boundaries and often have multiple impacts involving land, air or water resources. The one health approach is global, comprehensive, holistic, collaborative and trans-disciplinary thereby promoting research into all facets of an issue – causes, symptoms, transmissions, impacts, controls, treatments, preventions.

2.1. Provide supportive infrastructure and efficient services to facilitate research.

2.2. Actively pursue transdisciplinary research programs and extramural support.
