The Department of Comparative Medicine is a clinical department that offers residency training in laboratory animal medicine for veterinarians, although it does not offer degrees. Its faculty offer courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and participate in teaching in other departments. Both clinical faculty members, who are board-certified specialists in a veterinary medical specialty, and basic science faculty accept students to participate in ongoing research projects within the department and assist students with special research projects.
The discipline of Comparative Medicine uses the differences and similarities among species to understand biologic and disease mechanisms. It incorporates spontaneous or induced disease models as one of several approaches to research. The research interests of faculty are in neuroscience, infectious diseases, neuropathology, cancer, and molecular genetics.
