DEPARTMENT OF VETERINARY MICROBIOLOGY IN BRIEF

 

The Department of Veterinary Microbiology strives to excel in teaching and research programs that aim to address infectious disease problems at the animal-human interface. Through its strong collaboration with other relevant Departments both within and outside the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, the Department is actively involved in both undergraduate (DVM) and graduate training programs (MSc. and PhD) with specialization in Bacteriology, Mycology, Immunology and Virology. Currently, the Departmental research focus centers at exploring the genetic diversity of infectious disease agents (Viruses, bacteria and fungi) for future development of cutting-edge molecular diagnostics and next generation vaccines.


At the Department of Veterinary Microbiology, we have highly qualified well-trained academic and technical staff who respectively aid in teaching and conducting practical sessions for all our courses. The Department also has a functional diagnostic laboratory that works hand-in-hand with the Central Research Laboratory in infectious disease diagnosis. Specifically, the laboratory offers diagnostic services ranging from cultural identification, antimicrobial susceptibility testing, serological detection and molecular diagnosis of various infectious pathogens of medical and veterinary importance.
