The Unit of Laboratory Animal Pathology is focusing on analysis and research of diseases of laboratory animal models.

Laboratory animals represent a significant value in modern research of human diseases, such as cancer, neurological diseases, cardiovascular disease and infectious diseases. For these reasons it is of the utmost importance to investigate pathological transformations in the animal model and compare them to the respective human diseases.

Our multidisciplinary approach helps us to better understand molecular genetic mechanisms of diverse diseases and to develop customised therapies for human patients.

The Unit of Laboratory Animal Pathology represents an interface between histopathology and molecular biological research. .
