Welcome to the Division of Comparative Pathology (DCP) located in the Department of Pathology at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. We provide services to University of Iowa and external investigators through two Core laboratories:

We work closely with investigators to provide full service pathology, tissue handling and histology services. Our mission is to maximize the impact, relevance and quality of research studies modeling human disease.

Our expertise includes two ACVP-boarded veterinary pathologists, four certified histotechnologists, and two research associates with vast experience in necropsy techniques. Additionally, we have the medical resources of over 30 physician pathologists specialized in a wide range of tissue pathologies.
