Record Research Funding Bodes Well for Animals, Humans

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018 - Purdue has a great deal to celebrate in 2019. As the University hails 150 years of “Giant Leaps,” the College of Veterinary Medicine marks its 60th Anniversary as a national standard-bearer for veterinary education and animal health care. Many of the same faculty responsible for educating future veterinarians and providing top-ranked health care to animals also are drawing in record amounts of funding for research — research that in most cases promises to benefit humans as well as animals. In the 2017-2018 fiscal year, the College’s research garnered more than $12 million — an all-time high.
