Centre for Comparative Pathology


We are well-equipped with the latest technologies to enable our researchers to stay at the forefront of their fields.


Pathologia is an open-educational pathology resource. It covers all aspects of human pathology by integrating the cellular and molecular basis of disease with clinical medicine.

Animal Models

Animal models of human disease have proved invaluable, in particular manipulation of the mouse genome using embryonic stem (ES) cells, transgene insertion, gene knockout and genome editing.


Changes in tissue or cellular structure indicate changes in function and disease states and are often the defining features of disease.

Integration and Interrogation of Data

We bring together information from disparate sources and are developing methods for integration and interrogation of this data.

Next Generation Sequencing and Analysis

State of the art sequencing technologies are available to us through Edinburgh Genomics.
