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:

Blue Bufalo Veterinary Clinical Trials Office

The Blue Buffalo Veterinary Clinical Trials Office (BBVCTO) 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.

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
