Brief history

CIISA was formed in 1992, to develop and coordinate R&D activities conducted at FMV. CIISA activities are according with Europe's increasing concerns with animal health related issues that have considerable impact in the global economy and in public health and also with general claims for the development of novel environmentally sustainable systems for animal production and agriculture. Along 21 years of activity, high quality fundamental and applied multidisciplinary research has been pursued with major impacts on veterinary sciences at social, scientific and economic levels. Contributions to improve animal and human quality of life, under the "One Health" concept, are noticeable through the development of novel strategies for diagnosis and therapeutics, innovative biotechnological products, sustainable production systems and safe animal products of high quality.
