Our Research Themes and Priorities

The research, development and extension agenda of the College of Veterinary Medicine, Visayas State University are encapsulated into four different research themes and priorities which include:

  • Animal Health and Productivity– poverty alleviation and food security
  • Ethnoveterinary Medicine– development of indigenous plants into herbal drugs for animals
  • Zoonoses and Public Health– safeguarding the public against hazards from consumption of contaminated animal products and by-products
  • Veterinary Services– improving animal health and production systems

At the heart of CVM’s RDE is to strengthen the capabilities of its partners– the LGUs, GOs, POs, and NGO through the promotion, adoption and utilization of VSU-developed technologies.

It also aims to establish and/or strengthen collaborations with other agencies and institutions in research projects (LGUs, PHERNet, PCAARD, etc) while providing technical assistance and consultation services to end-users. We also have extensive faculty student cooperation in research project outputs both in publications and training activities.

Below are some of the research and extension activities by the college:
