Research Opportunities at UMass

Veterinary & Animal Science students at all levels have the opportunity to work in the laboratories of nationally and internationally recognized scientists studying immunology, reproduction and development, genetics and toxicology. The Department encourages students to expand their knowledge beyond the conventional classroom through independent studies, practica and internships under the guidance of departmental faculty. Projects are graded and students may earn course credits based upon their experience from library research on a specific topic to significant hands-on laboratory research.  The Department recommends you review the research being done by each of our primary investigators, choose a topic that interests you and then make an appointment with the primary investigator to discuss the possibility of working in the primary investigator’s lab.
