Supporting Faculty Expertise

Enabling investigators to broaden the impact of veterinary medicine

Building a mighty base of faculty talent enriches the academic environment. Endowed professorships are crucial for recruiting and retaining the highest-quality faculty. Donors provide funds for the overall improvement of Penn Vet, but some have interests in specific clinical disciplines or research areas. By funding endowed professorships, donors can convene the brightest minds to pursue particular areas of inquiry to spur advances in translational research and discovery. 

Support our inspiring faculty and clinicians in their pursuit of creative, innovative translational research to advance revolutionary discoveries.

A Measure of Dedication

Making headway against a killer virus

Ebola just isn’t going away. Following the major 2014 outbreak in West Africa, the deadly infection came back with a vengeance last year in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where it has claimed nearly 550 lives to date.

The impact has been felt closer to home as well.


Navigating cytokine storms

It’s a trajectory followed by many who experience a severe case of COVID-19: They feel poorly for a few days, improve over a day or two and then, a week or 10 days into their infection, have respiratory difficulties, a stroke, organ damage, or another dangerous complication and wind up in the intensive care unit.
