Collaboration with China

In July 2013, Penn Vet Center for Animal Health and Productivity faculty member Dr. Zhengxia Dou, and Penn Vet Dean Joan Hendricks visited four academic and research institutions – China Agricultural University, Inner Mongolia Agricultural University, Northwest Agriculture & Forestry University, and the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding – and two corporations – Ringpu Biology animal health pharmaceutical firm and Hua Xia Dairy Farm. As a result of these visits, Penn Vet is forging new interactions and academic exchanges.

Penn Vet's international collaboration has included externships in China for Penn Vet students, as well as the opportunity for students from China's Inner Mongolia Agricultural University and Northwest Agriculture & Forestry University to come to Penn Vet.
