Welcoming the third millennium era of the 21st century, the development in the livestock sector and animal health is required to emerge with a new paradigm that is more pro-poor. With the increasing rate of human mobility throughout the world in this era, the flow of disease transmission in animals, livestock, and humans is very easy. This is a tough challenge or task in the field of animal health as one of the spearheads in preventing, detecting, and counteracting the entry of zoonotic diseases from outside Indonesia. Various efforts have been made to prevent the spread of the disease, but the results have not been satisfactory, especially in terms of early prevention, quick diagnosis, efficiently, and accurately. For this reason, through a strategic approach from aspects of research in the field of animal health, it is expected to solve some of the problems faced in dealing with diseases in animals. Another important thing is the improvement of human resources and molecular-based diagnostic technologies that support the science development in the field of animal health.
Animals and fish are two important sources of animal protein for human resources. These sources can be obtained from livestock and fishery products. Fish is a producer of animal protein which is very important for humans, especially in the form of side dishes that are very popular with people in Indonesia. At this time there are many problems in the aquaculture business. One of the important things in the fisheries business is the problem of diseases that attack fish, caused by parasites, bacteria, viruses, and fungi. This disease causes a lot of economic losses for fish farmers, because it causes very high mortality.
In correlation with the importance of knowledge in the diagnosis of diseases in fish both histopathologically and modern diagnosis, the Pathology Department has conducted a lot of research on fish diseases, in collaboration with the Fisheries Service and the Central and Regional Fish Quarantine Centers.
- Creating a superior laboratory in disease diagnosis to lead a healthy, productive, and creative Indonesian society based on local resources.
- Form and educate students as a reliable human resources in preventing and overcoming animal health problems in Indonesia.
- Organizing education, research, and community service in the field of diseases in animals, livestock and fish.
- Empowering the potential in the Pathology Laboratory and lecture staffs in the field of diseases in animals, livestock, and fish related to the diagnosis of diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi.
- Optimizing the facilities and infrastructure in the Pathology laboratory for the implementation of the Tri Dharma of Higher Education.
- Creating opportunities for cooperation in the development of disease diagnosis in animals, livestock and fish with other state or private institutions.
- Preserve and utilize natural resources that are useful in supporting education, research, and community service.

- Study of cancer in experimental animals for chemoprevention tests for drugs, chemical compounds or medicinal plants. The models used were models of lung cancer (in mice), skin cancer (in BALB/C mice) and Stam Louis, breast cancer (in Spragul Dawley mice). The study was carried out together with Faculty of Pharmacy UGM, Faculty of Medicine UGM, Faculty of Medicine UMY, and Faculty of Medicine UAD. 2.
- Research on Avian Influenza with research focus: Diagnosis techniques with immunohithochemistry/cytochemistry, RT-PCR and the development of techniques for diagnosing Avian Influenza. 3.
