Dedication of Veterinary and Biomedical Research Building - May 2

WSU scientists are investigating important biomedical questions affecting human and animal health. Explore this new, state-of-the-art home of significant research: The Veterinary and Biomedical Research Building (VBRB). The facility is the newest addition to the Research and Educational Complex on the Pullman campus.

What health issues are researchers investigating that could improve your well-being?
Obesity and Diabetes: Understanding food intake and how energy is regulated in the body will help prevent obesity and diabetes.
Emotional health: Knowing the biological basis of emotions promotes a deeper understanding of well-being for companion and production animals, and can improve the lives of people with affective disorders.
Sleep and circadian rhythms: Learning how circadian biology and rhythms (or dysrhythms) affect animal biology can improve daily function in both animals and people.
Neurological disease: Uncovering the causes of Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases may lead to treatments to repair loss of function.
Heart health: Identifying the biophysical mechanisms of cardiac muscle contraction may develop new insights into cardiac function and disease.
Drug addiction: Discovering the biological actions of commonly abused drugs may help combat the devastation of addiction and prevent relapses.
