Research Program in Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology

Program Description

The research program in veterinary clinical pharmacology at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine consists of studies designed to define and improve rational drug therapy in animals. The research focus consists of studies in a wide variety of animal species, including dogs, cats, horses, ruminants, zoo animals, reptiles, fish, and birds. Current studies focus on the disposition of antibiotics, antifungal drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs, gastrointestinal drugs, and analgesic drugs in a variety of animal species. Studies originate from our laboratory, or are performed in collaboration with investigators at NCSU, other veterinary colleges, zoos, or pharmaceutical companies.

For a descripton of the NCSU Graduate Program in Pharmacology, go to: Comparative Biomedical Sciences (CBS).

The clinical pharmacology residency at NCSU is in compliance with the requirements for board certification by the American College of Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology (www.ACVCP.org). For a description of the NCSU Residency Program in Veterinary Clinical Pharmacology.
