The building of diagnosis on Veterinary Medicine is constituted by the rational assessment of the problems or facts, their causes and by the study the effectiveness of the decisions taken. Research on diagnosis in veterinary medicine is all the research that provides information to assist in the recognition of problems and events relating to animals, their health, reproductive efficiency, animal science and welfare and of the effectiveness of the decisions taken on the basis of the diagnosis. The FMVZ/USP favors actions that aims to modernize the laboratory infrastructure directed to these activities and that facilitate integration between researchers from different laboratories, promoting internal and external exchange of people and resources toward this research topic, encouraging and offering access to facilities and equipment. This is a network model where each laboratory works with its specialty and its professional and personal expertise. The phase VIII of this project will continue to give continuity to previous projects, advancing in the consolidation of the proposed prioritization of infrastructure modernization and technology support to laboratories, meeting the following needs of the research activity: a) adequacy and stabilization of the electrical grid of the research laboratories at the Biotechnology Center in Animal Reproduction (CBRA) Department of Animal Reproduction (VRA) FMVZ - USP campus "Fernando Costa" in Pirassununga; b) adequacy of the research Infrastructure, Department of Pathology; c) update of research equipments and laboratory Infrastructure of the Department of Nutrition and Animal Production (VNP), FMVZ - USP campus "Fernando Costa" in Pirassununga; d) update of research equipment and laboratory research Infrastructure of the Department of Internal Animal Medicine (VCM), FMVZ - USP; e) purchase of equipment for video conferencing and accessories of image and video edition for the Department of Preventive Veterinary Medicine and Animal Health; f) acquisition and surgical furniture installation to the new experimental surgical center of the Department of Surgery; g) maintenance and adequacy of the systems of emergency power generation of laboratories and departments of FMVZ.
