Department of Pathobiology
The Department of Pathobiology is actively engaged in research, teaching, and outreach within the College of Veterinary Medicine. Research is directed toward basic biomedical science, comparative medicine, and applied aspects of animal diseases.
The department's 34 faculty members include 13 with board-certification in a clinical specialty, and members of the Scott-Ritchey Research Center, the Alabama State Diagnostic Laboratory, the Auburn Transgenic Facility, and the Sugg Laboratory for Animal Health Research.
The Department of Pathobiology is the academic home for 26 graduate students and residents (19 PhD-level) in the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program. Pathobiology faculty enrich the educational experiences of graduate students, residents, and veterinary students through their application of new knowledge in infectious disease, biodetection, cancer biology, molecular therapy, vaccinology, public health, and applied diagnostics.
