The graduate school WIAS, Wageningen Institute of Animal Sciences, combines the research of twelve Chair groups of Wageningen University & Research and three research organizations of the Animal Sciences Group.

WIAS is engaged in fundamental and strategic research and provides training for young researchers on societally relevant animals, ranging from commercial animals such as livestock and fish, to experimental animals such as zebrafish, mice and rats to companion animals and free ranging (wild) animals.
