Getting Started

Research Pathology Services supports research in animal models of human disease by providing histology techniques and veterinary pathology services. With expertise in a wide range of mammalian and non-mammalian species, the Facility assists investigators with, design of experiments, analysis of gross and microscopic tissues, and interpretation of findings. The Research Pathology Services team is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and is staffed by an ACVP boarded veterinary pathologist, PhD lab manager, and three full-time technicians. The Facility encourages early partnership with investigators during the development of research projects in order to provide the best research, technical, and administrative support.
