Course Summary

Overview

The University of Liverpool’s Institute of Infection and Global Health was established to bring together leading medical, veterinary and basic science researchers from across the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences.

Veterinary Pathology research at the University of Liverpool involves many areas of disease, including infectious diseases (bacterial, virological and parasitic diseases), immunopathology, oncology, neuropathology, degenerative diseases, toxicology and drug safety.

Our work uses many different morphological in situ techniques, with particular expertise in immunohistology and electron microscopy, as well as molecular methods. The range of species in which we are interested includes domestic animals (companion animal and livestock), wildlife and zoo species and laboratory animals.

Based at both the Leahurst and Liverpool campuses, postgraduate training opportunities exist for veterinary surgeons both towards specialisation in veterinary pathology (DiplECVP, FRCPath) and to obtain a postgraduate research degree (PhD).

In addition to the expertise and areas of research interest within our group, we have well-established collaborations with other clinical and non-clinical researchers, both within the University of Liverpool and at other institutions. Inter-disciplinary postgraduate opportunities as part of a collaboration between Veterinary Pathology and the Centre for Drug Safety Science, which may also include the study of infectious diseases, are also available.
