The Division of Animal Sciences has an international reputation for research in mammalian reproduction, particularly in ovarian, uterine and developmental physiology, and in central nervous function. In addition the Division houses the Centre for Applied Bioethics and carries out basic and applied research in this field.

Teaching takes place within the Rob Clarke Teaching Laboratory , our research facilities, the University Farm as well as the School lecture theatres.
