The Scott-Ritchey Research Center's mandate is to perform state-of-the-art research into diseases and other medical problems of companion animals. While these projects are focused on animal health and well-being, many of these projects have the potential to help with important human disease problems as well. Researchers within the Center are currently organized into Research Interest Groups. Additionally, Center faculty have College of Veterinary Medicine, Auburn University as well as national and international research collaborations.
Current Research Interest Groups are:
- Inherited disease biology, including cancer— Drs. Henry Baker, Nancy Cox, Douglas Martin, Tatiana Samoylova, Bruce Smith
- Molecular therapy of inherited diseases, including cancer—Drs. Henry Baker, Nancy Cox, Douglas Martin, Tatiana Samoylova, Bruce Smith
- Contraception of dogs and cats for population control—Drs. Henry Baker, Nancy Cox, and Tatiana Samoylova.
- Cellular targeting biology— Drs. Nancy Cox, Tatiana Samoylova, and Bruce Smith.
