Comparative Animal Core
Comparative Animal Core provides a platform for preclinical and translational research and training
The Comparative Animal Core (CAC) provides an integrated platform for preclinical and translational research and training for studies involving animals with natural disease. | Meet the team
The CAC is made up of three major components:
Clinical Trials Office
The Clinical Trials Office (CTO) provides assistance in the design, execution, and evaluation of veterinary clinical trials of client owned animals. The CTO facilitates the conduct of such studies through input into clinical trial design, networking with regional veterinarians to ensure timely enrollment, assistance in collection and coordination of data, and establishment of standard operating procedures.

For more information contact Dr. Cheryl London, DVM, PhD.
Animal Tissue Biorepository
The Animal Tissue Biorepository collects and stores tissue specimens from diseased animals and data warehouse on disease diagnosis, pathology, treatments, and other clinical outcomes.
To request tissue from the Biospecimen Repository, please follow the Tissue Request Guidelines. Requests for tissue from outside the College of Veterinary Medicine must submit an outside tissue request form. | Tissue request guidelines

Comparative Pathology and Mouse Phenotyping
The Comparative Pathology and Mouse Phenotyping Shared Resource (CPMPSR) provides expert, readily available and affordable experimental pathology support to investigators utilizing animal models to study human disease.
Comparative pathologists affiliated with the CPMPSR are familiar with normal anatomy and physiology, as well as background age- and strain-related lesions of various animal models. Recognition of lesions and their interpretation in the context of individual investigations provides a critical component to research incorporating animal models. | Get more information
