Who we are
Pathology is the foundation of all medicine, human and veterinary. As pathologists, we study the manifestations and causes of disease in all species of the animal kingdom.
As researchers and academics, we strive to advance the study of veterinary diseases and the comparison of diseases manifested by diverse species of animals.
We have the largest repository of pathology images in the world. Our unique courses and content are provided by world-renowned experts and outstanding pathologists in the field.
We pursue and disseminate our knowledge not for its own sake, but to improve the health and well-being of all animals in the world – humans included.
