Pathobiology Faculty

Located on both the Philadelphia and New Bolton Center campuses, Penn Vet's Pathobiology faculty has not only built an outstanding reputation for fundamental research, but provides crucial clinical services for the School and the State. Furthermore, by offering the very best training for veterinary students, residents, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, the faculty is helping to mold the future leaders in veterinary medicine and in basic research.

Our faculty's research efforts in cancer particularly focus on understanding disease as it occurs in animals, and is aimed at designing new strategies to control cancer in both animals and humans.
