O que eu aprenderei?

The Department of Veterinary Microbiology has students with diverse interests in infectious disease and their research questions address this area at levels ranging from the molecular to the population. We are united by our desire to explore microorganisms and their relationships with us and other animals.

The goals of the Department of Veterinary Microbiology are to sustain and further develop internationally recognized collaborative research programs that address infectious disease problems at the animal, human and environment interface and to deliver training programs in veterinary medicine at undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate levels that address societal demands and expectations.

Strong areas of research by departmental faculty include: disease ecology, influence of climate change on infectious diseases, investigation of disease at the interface of people, domestic animals, wildlife and the environment, emerging infectious diseases, antimicrobial resistance, companion animal zoonoses, microbiomes in health and disease, molecular diagnostics, vaccine development and efficacy, and viral exploitation of host pathways. The Department maintains a successful graduate training program in these areas and views the diversity of our faculty as a strength and opportunity for synergy.

The Department of Veterinary Microbiology, located in one of North America’s leading Veterinary Colleges, has close ties with other centres of research excellence at the University of Saskatchewan such as the Vaccine and Infectious Diseases Organization-International Vaccine Centre (VIDO-InterVac). As part of a larger One Health initiative, the Department plays a critical role in delivering an international Interdisciplinary training program in infectious diseases, Food Safety and Public Policy (ITraP).
