The Office of Research and Advanced Studies oversees research at the LSU School of
Veterinary Medicine, as well as the advanced degree program (MS and PhD). Scientists
at the LSU SVM are investigating infectious diseases, cardiovascular health, vector-borne
diseases, respiratory diseases, cancer biology, comparative orthopedic research and
much more. Our research can improve the lives of both people and animals.
We offer MS and PhD degrees in biological and veterinary medical sciences. We also
offer a combined DVM/PhD and a DVM/MPH.
