Cummings School enjoys a rich history of innovation and a strong commitment towards advancing understanding of health and disease. As a research community, we seek new and innovative ways of preventing human and animal diseases before they develop, and cures and therapies for others. Our faculty pushes the boundaries of discovery every day as they pursue new medicines, innovative surgical techniques and unique treatment methods. The research being conducted at Cummings School -- both in laboratories and in clinical studies-- is advancing health care for animals and humans.
