University of California, Davis

Major Areas of Interest

The UC Davis Comparative Medical Science Training Program provides graduate research training, leading to the Ph.D. degree, for veterinarians who seek careers in biomedical research. The training program is based in the Center for Comparative Medicine, which is a research and graduate teaching center that is sponsored by the Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. The Center hosts faculty from both schools who are engaged in research utilizing animal models of human disease, with major areas of emphasis in infectious disease, cancer, and genomics. Mouse biology and pathology are also major areas of emphasis, as the Center oversees the UC Davis Mouse Biology Program and an NCRR Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Center. The Center interfaces with the campus laboratory animal medicine program, the adjacent California National Primate Research Center, and residency programs, in veterinary pathology and laboratory animal medicine. Students who matriculate into the program are placed with mentors within the Center, or with mentors in various programs in the School of Medicine or Veterinary Medicine, allowing customization of training emphasis to the students' interests. The program fosters an appreciation for membership within the broad professional community of comparative medicine.

Tulane University

Major Areas of Interest

Postdoctoral Fellowships in Experimental Medicine and Pathology are available as part of a comprehensive research training environment provided jointly by the Tulane National Primate Research Center and the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine.

The objective of this program is to provide qualified veterinarians (D.V.M./V.M.D. or equivalent) with the requisite training and research experience in experimental medicine or experimental pathology to enable them to compete successfully for academic positions and research funding on a national level. Research training obtained during this program may be used to partially fulfill the requirements for a Ph.D. at either Tulane University or Louisiana State University. The major research theme is on infectious diseases, although significant opportunities exist in other areas such as regenerative medicine and cancer. Particularly unique opportunities exist to study nonhuman primate models of AIDS and emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases.

Trainees acquire in-depth knowledge in the molecular pathogenesis of specific infectious diseases and hands-on experience with investigative tools and techniques needed for molecular-mechanism-based biomedical research using animal models. This includes but is not limited to: immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, confocal microscopy, quantitative image analysis, advanced cell culture techniques, flow cytometry, humoral and cellular immunology, quantitative PCR, recombinant DNA technology and other molecular biological methodologies. The training provided fulfills the eligibility requirements of several specialty boards including the American College of Veterinary Pathologists and the American College of Lab Animal Medicine.
