#Animal Matters

A Trained Monkey Could Do This: Refining How We Work with Animals Towards Improving Translational Value

This seminar is part of the Animal Matters Seminar Series presented by Tufts Center for Animals and Public Policy  

Speaker:  Kelly A. Metcalf Pate, DVM, PhD, DACLAM, Director, Division of Comparative Medicine, Dorothy W. Poitras Associate Professor of Biological Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

No animal model can perfectly model human disease. Dr. Metcalf Pate's work seeks to refine the way we work with animals in infectious disease research to increase their translational value, while simultaneously improving animal welfare. 

Dr. Metcalf Pate is the Director for the Division of Comparative Medicine and the Dorothy W. Poitras Associate Professor of Biological Engineering at MIT. She received her BA in Zoology and Biochemistry from Boston University, her DVM from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine, and completed her residency training in laboratory animal medicine and PhD at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where she was faculty prior to moving to the Boston area. Her research interests include platelet immunology, virology and animal model development.
