The Hebrew University Koret School of Veterinary Medicine aims to excel as a leader in veterinary research in Israel, to be a regional center of veterinary science in the Middle East and to make a global impact in this field. Research in the school focuses on improving the health of domestic, companion and wildlife animals, and contributing to human well being at the interface between veterinary and human medicine. The topics of research include: microbiology, parasitology, infectious diseases, zoonotic diseases, veterinary entomology and disease transmission by arthropods, veterinary epidemiology, animal genetics, embryonic development, bone and skeletal metabolism, herd health, neurology and basic mechanisms in the brain function, and challenges in veterinary clinical medicine. The school includes full time researchers in the basic science track and faculty members who are clinicians that pursue clinical to basic research. Research is funded mainly by external competitive grants. The spectrum of research continues to expand as the school grows with a mission to serve as a center of excellence for clinical and basic veterinary research.
