Funded Projects

ILHAC funds are applied to research projects that advance knowledge of animal health, food safety and animal well-being in Iowa livestock.  Several national studies have identified a critical shortage of veterinarians who pursue research-oriented careers.  ILHAC funding provides ISU veterinary students with an opportunity to explore the field of research.  For 13 weeks each summer, students gain first-hand experience in research by working with veterinary mentors on ILHAC-funded projects.
