Comparative Biomedical Sciences - Master
The Field of Comparative Biomedical Sciences offers a rich environment for comparative biomedical studies. Modern, well-equipped laboratories are available to conduct research in all of the concentrations. The Cornell Biotechnology Program provides multi-user support facilities in confocal microscopy, electron microscopy, flow cytometry, amino acid sequencing, oligonucleotide synthesis, and gene cloning. The Division of Laboratory Animal Services is available for animal housing and assistance in animal surgical procedures. A large and varied clinic representing all domestic species offers unique opportunities for the study of spontaneous diseases, some of which have recently been development as animal models for human diseases. The college operates a racetrack and treadmill facilities to study sport physiology and medicine. Other college resources include farms; equine research facilities; specific-pathogen-free flocks of chickens, woodchucks, and other animals; and isolation facilities for infectious disease research. The Diagnostic Laboratory has large sets of data available for analysis and research. An agreement with the USDA facilities at Plum Island offers opportunities to study exotic diseases.
