The Section on Comparative Medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine provides internationally-recognized leadership in the translation of basic to clinical science. Our faculty seeks to foster an intellectual and collaborative environment that is dedicated to understanding diseases of relevance to public health through preclinical trials and biomedical research in nonhuman primates and other animals.
Our uniquely skilled faculty and staff serve as the School of Medicine’s center for primate expertise and provide research services to other investigators. The comparative medicine faculty is diverse and includes DVMs, PhDs and DVM/PhDs. Many are diplomates of the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM) and the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP).
