Department of Veterinary Pathobiology

http://vetmed.tamu.edu/vtpb

Head: Ramesh Vemulapalli

Graduate Advisor: Albert Mulenga

Faculty in the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology (VTPB) participate in training graduate students in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and offer instruction and research leading to the degrees of Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Biomedical Sciences. Department faculty also contribute to the academic and research training for university-wide interdisciplinary programs in Biotechnology, Genetics, and Toxicology that lead to MS and PhD degrees. Major specialty areas include infectious diseases (virology, bacteriology, parasitology), biodefense and emerging infectious diseases, metabolic diseases, genetics/genomics, neuroscience, cardiovascular science, and immunology and are options for students pursuing any graduate degree awarded by the Department.

The Department also offers post-doctoral (DVM) residency/graduate programs in anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, and laboratory animal medicine. Residents are required to enroll in graduate courses and may pursue either a Master of Science or Doctor of Philosophy degree. Minimum qualifications for residency programs include a DVM/VMD or equivalent degree. Selection of residents is made on the basis of academic achievement, letters of recommendation, and pertinent experience.
