The mission of the Center for Comparative Translational Research is to facilitate, coordinate and stimulate clinical and translational discovery, learning and engagement.
The Center's focus is on comparative medicine and translational research.
The Center is supporting both human and animal translational research. In a human medicine context, the focus is on the translation from rodent models through pre-clinical studies using principles of comparative medicine. In a veterinary context, it spans the entire translational continuum, including the application of research to primary veterinary care settings.
The Center has core facilities for animal pre-clinical and clinical studies, and for histology and image digitization. Examples of studies conducted in the Center facilities are pre-clinical studies of orthopedic devices intended for animal and human use, clinical studies of treatment and prevention of respiratory diseases in horses and animal clinical trials evaluating the treatment of bladder cancer in Scottish Terriers, an animal model of human bladder cancer.
