Institute of animal biology of NAAS is the leading Ukrainian research institution in livestock industry and the scientific center for "Physiology of Animals" which coordinates investigations in physiology and biochemistry, nutrition, biotechnology for scientific institutions of the National Academy of Agrarian Sciences of Ukraine.

Institute deals with the biology of growth, development and adaptation, metabolism in farm animals, development of nano- and biotechnology methods to increase reproductive ability of animals, the study of biological effects of nanomaterials, the study of the molecular mechanisms of immune potential in animals, methods for producing of environmentally safe food.
