Sue VandeWoude, CVMBS Director of Research

In the CSU College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, we’re proud of our world-renowned expertise in life sciences. This foundation uniquely positions our college to tackle local and global challenges, to provide critical new knowledge through basic research, and to offer important solutions. Particularly valuable are two approaches that help define our research: translational medicine, which translates insights gained from basic science and novel clinical therapies of animals with naturally occurring disease into improvements in human medicine; and the One Health framework, which advances global public health and well-being by investigating pressing questions at the interface of human, animal, and environmental health.
