About Purdue University
The Comparative Pathobiology (CPB) Department in the College of Veterinary Medicine is primarily concerned with understanding the cause and pathogenesis of diseases of animals. The goal is to apply this knowledge to increase food-animal productivity and to improve the health of man and animals.
The approximately 34 faculty, 50 graduate students, and 35 support staff are sensitive to the needs of society and the industries served by veterinary medicine. Research, education, and diagnostic programs in the department are periodically reviewed to determine if these needs are being met. The faculty is committed to addressing important problems that could improve animal or human health and productivity.
The specific missions of the Department of Comparative Pathobiology are to:
•Generate new knowledge through basic and applied research.
•Educate students in professional and graduate programs about the concepts and principles of pathobiology, human-animal interaction, clinical epidemiology, and public health, including food safety concepts.
•Develop, apply, and evaluate new technologies (e.g., diagnostics, therapeutics, vaccines, etc.) for improving health and productivity.
•...Provide diagnostic and epidemiologic investigational services to support the educational program.
•Inform the public and food-animal producers about issues of animal and environmental health, animal welfare, and the veterinary profession.
