  • Description:
  • The major goal of our graduate training program is to select and train young scientists with or without clinical training to design and conduct hypothesis-driven studies aimed to elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms of diseases. Our training program is committed to providing excellent graduate training in comparative pathology and resident training in diagnostic veterinary anatomical and clinical pathology.

    The four major focus areas of research in the department are:

    - microbiology and immunology
    - neurobiology and anatomy
    - pathobiology
    - toxicology

    Our graduate training program is supported by a training grant from the NIH (National Council on Research Resources) to train veterinarians in the field of comparative pathology. In collaboration with various institutes at NIH, our graduate training program also supports the residency/PhD program for veterinarians, which includes residency training veterinary anatomical pathology in our department and graduate research at NIH.

    Our graduate students are expected to identify their research advisers (major professor) soon after their arrival and establish their guidance committee and have their plan of study in place before the end of the first year. We expect our graduate students to give seminars in the departmental seminar series as well present their research findings in scientific meetings. We also expect them be able to write research proposals to extramural agencies to obtain funding for research by the time they finish their training.
