Center for Comparative Translational Research

Purdue and CTSI core facilities for animal pre-clinical and clinical studies, for histology and image digitization, and for pharmacodynamics studies.

1 Center, 4 Core Facilities

Our Mission
To help researchers conduct exceptional animal model research by facilitating, coordinating and stimulating clinical and translational discovery, learning and engagement.

Center for Comparative Translational Research (CTR)

The Center's focus is on comparative and translational research. In a human medicine context, the focus is on the translation from rodent models through pre-clinical studies using principles of comparative medicine. In a veterinary context, it spans the entire translational continuum, including the application of research to primary veterinary care settings. Examples of studies conducted in the Center facilities are pre-clinical studies of orthopedic devices intended for animal and human use, clinical studies of treatment and prevention of respiratory diseases in horses and animal clinical trials evaluating the treatment of bladder cancer in Scottish Terriers, an animal model of human bladder cancer.
