"The University of Missouri School of Medicine is within walking distance from the College of Veterinary Medicine. The veterinary college has many unique large animal models -- from retinal disease to neuromuscular dystrophy --  to top-notch veterinary expertise in many disciplines. If your goal is to translate your breakthrough findings from mouse models to patients, MU is the place to go. MU is one of these few institutions that has large animal resources and is capable of bridging the translational gap between rodent models and human patients."
