Collaboration between health professionals, such as MDs and DVMs, and basic research scientists is the foundation of the biomedical research enterprise that drives the development and characterization of in vivo models to understand disease mechanisms and to translate that information to better diagnose, categorize, and/or treat medical conditions. Much of this work focuses on the characterization of mouse models of human diseases. Additionally, the study of natural disease in animal species is also essential to biomedical research. Veterinary pathologists play a key role in this area under the umbrella of “One Health” because of their knowledge of comparative anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pharmacology. This session will discuss the concept of comparative pathology and the role of veterinary pathologists and scientists in characterizing, working with, and translating experimental and natural disease models to better understand both animal and human diseases.
