​We focus on more than animals. Our research also finds solUTions to problems that affect humans and the environment.

​Our faculty, staff, and students contribute to the process of discovery through a wide range of basic and translational interests that impact not only veterinary medicine but also the biomedical sciences, as well as the public health needs of the state and nation.

UTIA and Hanover Research

UTIA AgResearch and the College of Veterinary Medicine have entered into an agreement with Hanover Research, a grant development and consulting firm, to provide grant consultant services to UTIA faculty. The primary goal is to provide additional faculty resources to increase the success rate of extramurally funded competitive grant proposals. There is no cost-share requirement for the individual PI or his/her home department.

For additional information and to submit a request for Hanover services, visit the UTIA and Hanover Research details page.
