Technical Services and Veterinary Pathology Expertise
In 2013, the Institute of Veterinary Pathology has established the Laboratory for Animal Model Pathology (LAMP) to assist research in relevant, generic areas of laboratory/experimental animal morphology and pathology.
a core research and service facility at the Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Zurich.
technical services and expertise to researchers at the University of Zurich and outside clients who undertake morphological studies as part of their work with animal models and/or laboratory animals.
LAMP aims to
foster interdisciplinary research for optimal use of laboratory/experimental animals;
provide scientific support through laboratory animal health monitoring and disease diagnosis (diagnostic service);
provide veterinary pathology expertise for research projects involving animal work (on collaborative and service basis);
provide a timely and cost-effective technical service and expertise in relevant, generic areas of laboratory/experimental animal morphology and pathology;
train researchers in basic techniques to allow optimal in situ studies on experimental animals (in collaboration with the Institute of Laboratory Animal Science LAS/LTK, Vetsuisse Faculty, University of Zürich: www.ltk.uzh.ch).
