The Veterinary Research Institute in Brno (VRI) was founded on 10 September 1955 by the decree of the Minister of Agriculture as an institution of the Czechoslovak Academy of Agricultural Sciences. It was a new institution specialized in the veterinary medicine research. Its activity was focused on performing exact experiments with the aim to solve health problems in farm animals, protect people from zoonoses and to guarantee safety of foodstuffs and raw materials of animal origin.

At present, the VRI is a funded institution and directly controlled by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic. By the end of 2004, VRI had 230 employees. The Institute cooperates with numerous Czech and international research institutions and state executive organs.

The VRI is the only specialized research institute in the Czech Republic aimed at the investigation in the area of veterinary medicine including practical application of the research. Moreover, the VRI research objectives comprise the area of broad preclinical disciplines of veterinary science including human medicine, ecology and other specializations. These disciplines form a complex that brings novel information in the area of infectious and non-infectious diseases, hygiene and food safety and ecotoxicology. The information obtained is used to improve the quality of preventive and prophylactic systems to control diseases in farm animals in the existing herds by both publication of the results and popularization among professional public and by active participation in solving current problems directly in the field. Most of research outcomes are published in renowned scientific journals with impact factors.
