The NHVDL contributes to the University's academic mission in a variety of ways. Our veterinary pathologists and staff teach courses in the Department of Molecular and Biomedical Sciences. Students are employed at the lab and receive hands on training in STEM disciplines, using state-of-the-art equipment. NHVDL veterinarians serve as advisors for students in the Preveterinary Medicine Program. Independent investigation courses are also offered for students who wish to gain experience in the lab.
