Center for Molecular and Comparative Endocrinology

The Center for Molecular and Comparative Endocrinology was established in July 2008. The foci of the center include, but are not limited to, Environmental Endocrinology,
Reproductive Biology and the Evolution and Regulation of Physiological Phenomena. The center seeks to expand the capacity and synergism of "systems endocrinology and physiology" research that links to other areas of UNH and regional medical schools.

The New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory

The New Hampshire Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory at the University of New Hampshire provides professional expertise and laboratory facilities that allow prompt diagnosis of animal diseases of public health and economic importance to the state.

 

Northeast Center for Vibrio Disease and Ecology

Oysters

NCVDE is a regional center for the study of environmental, evolutionary and climatic factors that affect bacterial pathogens in coastal waters and shellfish. The Center’s goals are to enhance research, education and outreach on the risks and management strategies of climate-induced changes in the pathogenicity of naturally occurring bacteria (e.g., Vibrio species) in coastal ecosystems, in order to better respond to public health threats.
