The Department of Veterinary Biosciences represents the basic disciplines on which Veterinary Medicine is based, that is to say, anatomy, biochemistry, and microbiology as well as cell and molecular biology. In addition, the Department houses more applied disciplines of epidemiology, molecular genetics and pathology, and parasitology.
