Welcome to the Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences
Within the unique environment of the School of Veterinary Medicine, the Department of Comparative Biomedical Sciences (CBS) is committed to:
The CBS Department conducts basic and translational research in diverse areas of biomedical sciences including: cancer biology, cardiovascular disease, developmental biology, neurosciences, and toxicology. Through these efforts, we seek to understand the normal regulation of physiological and cellular processes, which are dysfunctional in disease states. Elucidating these mechanisms may offer novel approaches for therapeutic intervention. We provide the majority of courses in the curriculum of the first year Veterinary Medicine students, and contribute to the second and third year curricula. In addition, we support a vibrant and growing graduate program leading to a Master of Science or Doctor of Philosophy degree, and we provide outstanding research opportunities for post-doctoral trainees.
We invite you to explore our Department, and we especially invite those who are interested in enrolling in a PhD program involving biomedical research to contact us.
