Lincoln Memorial University

Veterinary Biomedical Science

 

 Welcome to Lincoln Memorial University and the Master of Science (MS) program! 

 Thank you for your interest in the Veterinary Biomedical Science (VBIO) program.  The MS VBIO is a degree program designed for students seeking advanced study in the biomedical sciences with a non-thesis option.  Graduates develop a strong foundation in comparative veterinary anatomy and are expected to independently explore the primary literature, analyze and critique published reports, and communicate in formal oral and written methodologies.  Graduates of the program have many options and can pursue a:  1) professional program of study, such as admission to a College of Veterinary Medicine 2) doctoral-level education in health-related professions, or 3) pathway to biomedical research. 

 

On a personal note, I have been an LMU faulty member since 2001 and am a member of the Pre-clinical faculty in LMU’s College of Veterinary Medicine (LMU-CVM).  My research interests include the epidemiology and immunology of parasitic, viral and zoonotic diseases.  My husband, Dr. Charles Faulkner is also a member of the LMU faculty and we have one son, Joe.  I enjoy spending time with our five dogs, knitting, gardening and relaxing by the pool.

I look forward to welcoming you to LMU!

Dr. Vina Faulkner
