Research Initiatives at Penn Vet


 

Penn Vet is always challenging the boundaries of research. We define ourselves by tackling the most difficult and current problems in our society. Here are several examples of how Penn Vet works with its neighbors, our economic challenges, and the threat to wildlife our increasingly global society continues to  present to not only our generation, but those that will follow as well.
