Dr. Katherine Gibson-Corley is a Veterinary Pathologist, collaborative researcher and specialist in comparative pathology and animal modeling of human diseases. She has expertise across a board range of research topics including cancer biology, pre-eclampsia, Cystic Fibrosis, inherited retinal diseases, allergic lung disease and infectious diseases such as Leishmaniasis. Dr. Gibson-Corley is also the Director of Comparative Pathology and Research Histology in the Translational Pathology Shared Resource (TPSR) which is a Core Laboratory devoted to pathology and histology services for researchers. Her goal is to collaboratively advance biomedical research as an integrated comparative pathologist and mentor students and faculty on how to use a comparative pathologist to further their studies. When not in the lab or behind the microscope, Dr. Gibson-Corley loves exploring the outdoors with her family, reading for fun and teaching and practicing yoga and mindfulness.

Research Information

As the Director of Comparative Pathology and Research Histology in the Translational Pathology Shared Resource (TPSR), my goal is to provide core pathology and histology resources to investigators to advance their research. The TPSR provides research histology, including immunohistochemistry (IHC) and novel antibody IHC optimization, as well as comprehensive necropsy and comparative pathology services for animal modeling systems with specific expertise and focus on mouse models. Veterinary Pathology Support is provided by a team of American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP)-Board Certified Veterinary Pathologists who are experienced in experimental design, optimal tissue collection and staining options as well as gross and histopathologic evaluation. We also specialize in research-specific pathology, including slide and tissue scoring, IHC quantification, tissue interpretation, photomicrograph figure construction and grantsmanship specific to animal modeling and comparative pathology.
