Participating chair groups
WIAS combines the research of thirteen chair groups of Wageningen University within the domain of animal sciences. At the moment more than 225 PhD candidates are enrolled in WIAS. There are about 30 postdocs connected to WIAS. WIAS’s scientific staff consists of about 130 faculty members, including 13 full and 16 personal and special professors, and 30 researchers from three Wageningen research institutes (Bio-veterinary Research, Livestock Research and Marine Research) are associated to WIAS.
WIAS research is organised in three related, and partly overlapping, core areas: ‘Future Food Systems’, ‘Integrative Biology’, and ‘Population Dynamics and Genomics’.
