SLU - Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
About
SLU is a world-class university in the fields of life and environmental sciences. SLU’s area of expertise encompasses agricultural sciences, veterinary medicine, natural resources and environment, as well as rural development and landscape architecture. In addition to basic research, SLU pursues problem-oriented research focused on the needs of its stakeholders. The faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science is the only one in Sweden with the competence to carry out advanced, large-scale research with cattle, pigs, horses and poultry, as well as clinical research with these species and dogs and cats. Studies of animal diseases, their origins and modes of transmission can also lead to further understanding of human diseases. The combination of veterinary medicine and animal science makes the Faculty unique, not only in Sweden, and provides an excellent opportunity for multidisciplinary research and education. At the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Sciences we work with most aspects of our animals' life and health, including farm animals as well as sports animals and pets.
Our thematic breadth is extensive, from animal husbandry, animal health and welfare, food safety and quality well to public health. In all these areas, we do research and educate at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels.
