New Construction on the College of Veterinary Medicine Campus
Construction is in full swing for the College of Veterinary Medicine's newest facility, the Livestock Infectious Disease Isolation Facility for Research, which will be completed by the Spring of 1999. Observant students and staff may have already noticed the progressing dirt work just east of the Veterinary Medical Research Institute (VMRI). The $6.27 million, 27,000 sq. ft. building is a needed addition to the current VMRI research facilities. The facility will be utilized by CVM scientists to expand and develop projects dealing with food safety issues such as Salmonellosis and E. coli infections, as well as livestock infectious diseases, such as Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS).
