Dr. Tsegaye Habtemariam, Dean, Veterinary Medicine, Nursing & Allied Health


Research and graduate studies is of strategic value for strengthening and advancing the academic programs of the College of Veterinary Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health (CVMNAH). Biomedical research and graduate studies are inherently interlinked and mutually supportive.

The goal is to create a world-class research and graduate studies academic enterprise at CVMANH dedicated to training African-American and other scientists and scholars in the creation of new knowledge.

The objectives include: a) Research geared to advance the biosciences especially in selected areas of molecular sciences and biotechnology by building bridges across the disciplines especially with the agricultural and food sciences and other areas of the biosciences including bioengineering, biobusiness and related disciplines. b) Research to promote the "one medicine concept" by integrating veterinary medicine with human health to exploit the new health technologies and biotechnologies. c) Research for advancing veterinary medicine in the new millennium.
