Clinical Discoveries

Clinical Discoveries

Whether developing new ways to restore sight, pinpointing levels of toxicity in the environment, or investigating microscopic organisms and viruses to protect against disease, scientific studies improve the quality of life for you, your pets and the world’s endangered species.  Through scientific studies, our faculty members work tirelessly in the pursuit of ways to improve the quality of life for animals and humans.  For example, a vaccine against Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (Feline AIDS) was developed and patented by a college faculty member who is looking at the relationship between FIV and human AIDS.  In addition, the college’s unique proximity to UF College of Medicine allows us to work collaboratively in the hopes of finding the cause and cure for many diseases that affect both animals and humans.
