Faculty within the Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology conduct research which includes animal models of HIV/AIDS, prenatal stress, atherosclerosis, and neurodegenerative disease.
Support MCP, the legacy of comparative medicine at Johns Hopkins. More than ever, donations are critical in this challenging funding climate. Your donation will be used as you designate – either to support the department's training programs through the John D. Strandberg Fund, to support comparative medicine research in the department, or to support Retrovirus Laboratory research.

Meghan Vermillion, a fourth year fellow, was awarded an AALAS Poster Award for her work on Pregnancy-Associated Alterations in Pulmonary Function in the Mouse: Implications for Influenza Pathogenesis and Disease. Alicia Braxton, a second year fellow, was recipient of an APV travel award so that she could present her work on Refining Medication Administration with a Novel Dispensing Device. We are so proud of their accomplishments!
