The Comparative Pathology and Mouse Phenotyping Shared Resource (CPMPSR) provides expert, affordable, experimental pathology support to OSUCCC – James researchers who use animal models to study human disease.
CPMPSR comparative pathologists are experts in the normal anatomy and physiology, and in background age- and strain-/breed-related lesions, infectious pathogens, husbandry practices and experimental models of various animal model species. Lesion recognition and interpretation within individual investigations provides a critical component to research that incorporates animal models.
The CPMPSR is used primarily by OSUCCC – James researchers and other investigators at The Ohio State University and affiliated institutions.
