Knowable Magazine: Inside the brains of aging dogs

Veterinary neurologist Stephanie McGrath at Colorado State University performs MRI scans on participants in the Dog Aging Project, looking for features that may connect brain shrinkage and other physical changes to dementia in older dogs. Most exciting, she says, is that her work suggests MRI might one day be used as an early detection tool.

Biodiversity Blog: Equity, Inclusion, and Justice in Science


Better understanding neurodiversity allows us to create a more inclusive community and to build a more diverse and innovative field of scientists, veterinarians, and other biomedical professionals of tomorrow.


We celebrated our students' research at MURALS and were especially excited for our student winners.

Equity-minded well-being

Well-being is an essential component of building a thriving community, but to reach it, we must center justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
