Comparative Pathology Shared Resource (CPSR)

Pig, fish, mice

Why Do You Need This New Shared Resource?

Comparative Pathologists are familiar with normal anatomy, physiology and histology, as well as background age- and strain-related conditions. Similar to laboratory animal veterinarians, they are familiar with the infectious pathogens of different species, as well as the research associated with different animal models.

Comparative pathologists can correlate disease manifestations with experimental research manipulations and provide human disease context to augment understanding.

Lymphoma within mouse spinal cord This research campus, and our foothill associates, engage in a wide variety of disease research and an equally wide variety of animal models serve to approximate aspects of the human disease condition. Collaboration with other research institutions, training and partnering with colleagues at Colorado State University, and elsewhere, strengthens model validation and research vigor in comparative studies.​
