Wageningen Bioveterinary Research contributes to the prevention, eradication and control of animal infectious diseases through research, diagnostics and consultancy. By doing so, we contribute to the health and wellbeing of animals and people.
We conduct research on health and (infectious) diseases e.g. in preclinical and clinical studies, animal models, epidemiology and risk management. The results of this research and analyses have been utilized to support dossiers submitted to regulatory authorities in Europe and the US.
Our expertise is continuously expanding by ongoing research projects for private and public stakeholders on topics such as antibiotic resistance, vaccine development, gut health and vector borne diseases. For this, we use our unique facilities in Lelystad that house livestock individually or in groups up to human Biosafety Level 3 and veterinary Biosafety Level 4.
Below you find examples from our research themes like animal and public health/animal diseases, (pre)clinical studies and vaccine development.
