Fostering the Power of Discovery

Research Committee

The discovery of knowledge is a process that functions at the heart of civilization itself. In 2012-2013, almost $500 million was spent on research-related activities at American colleges of veterinary medicine, with basic and applied inquiries spanning every dimension of the biomedical sciences.

Advancements made through research improve the quality of life for people and animals, and play an important role in economic development and sustainability. Research also informs the educational process on university campuses, helping faculty members produce and transmit the newest information to students.

The AAVMC works to support the growth of the research enterprise at member institutions by partnering with the Association of Public Land Grant Universities (APLU), the American Veterinary Medical Association and other organizations. It also works closely with the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the National Academies, Congress and executive agencies to foster the development of resources to advance research at its member institutions.
