- Comparative Neurology Program Laboratory. The Comparative Neurology Program in the College of Veterinary Medicine encompasses the “One Health, One Medicine” initiative as one of the four strategic initiatives of Mizzou Advantage. Research in the Comparative Neurology Program (CNP) is devoted to understanding the causes of developmental and degenerative diseases of the nervous system in domestic animals and translating that knowledge into the therapies of tomorrow for the benefit of both human and animal patients. At each level, training of current and future veterinarians and researchers applies these principles. The underlying philosophy of the CNP is that there is only one medicine and the principles and discoveries can be widely applied for the benefit of all species. An animal disease can form a key role in the translation of basic science knowledge to clinical applications. The goals of the CNP are to identify developmental and degenerative diseases of the nervous system in animals (particularly dogs and cats), understand the molecular pathogenesis of these diseases and corresponding diseases in humans, while translating that understanding into improved diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. The CNP has active collaborations with other departments in the CVM and the School of Medicine in the areas of molecular genetics, neurodegenerative diseases, neuro-ophthalmology, neuropathology, epilepsy, and gene therapy. The CNP also has designated research space as the Comparative Neurology Laboratory.
- Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program (INP). The INP offers talented graduate students a chance to train for a career in one of the most exciting fields of modern science. Most of our students pursue research and teaching careers in basic neuroscience departments at prestigious research universities. Others opt for challenging and rewarding positions in applied fields, such as drug research or neurodiagnostic technology.
