Messerli Research Institute

In 2010, agreements defining the establishment of a new research institute that is co-financed by the Swiss Messerli Foundation were signed. The Messerli Research Institute was established under the auspices of the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna and in cooperation with the Medical University of Vienna and the University of Vienna, as an interdisciplinary centre of excellence specialised in human-animal-interactions, where issues pertaining to animal welfare, ethics, biology and medicine are dealt with in an interdisciplinary manner.
