Clinical Investigations


The Clinical Studies Core Clinical Investigations is designed to facilitate clinical studies being performed on veterinary patients through the Veterinary Health Complex. Clinical studies are integral to the advancement of veterinary medicine, as they are used to investigate risk factors for disease, as well as methods to prevent, treat or cure disease. The CSC provides both organizational and technical support for such studies, and serves as a liaison between clinical investigators, referring veterinarians, pet owners and industry to promote clinical studies and help ensure their success. For more information regarding the CSC please contact or 919.513.6384.

Dr. Rush at Gala.1W

Dr. Rush was recognized as our 2012 NC State CVM Distinguished Alumna at the NC State Evening of the Stars Gala on Friday, January 25. Dr. Laura Rush graduated from the NCSU College of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. Prior to enrolling in veterinary school she was a registered nurse, specializing in the care of cancer patients. During her time as a veterinary student she became very interested in anatomic pathology, due in large part to her outstanding professors at the College. Upon graduation she went to The Ohio State University where she completed a residency in anatomic pathology and a PhD in cancer genetics. She joined the faculty at the Ohio State College of Veterinary Medicine and headed an NIH-funded laboratory focused on cancer research in dogs and humans. While at OSU she was active in the Comprehensive Cancer Center and founded and led the Comparative Oncology Program, a multidisciplinary group of faculty, staff, and students with an interest in translational research for animal cancer. In 2008 she left OSU to join GSW Worldwide, a medical marketing firm, where she holds the title of Vice President, Associate Medical Director. At GSW Laura uses her clinical, scientific, and veterinary background to help develop marketing strategy for healthcare companies such as Eli Lilly, GE Healthcare, and Stryker, among others. She lives in Columbus, Ohio, with her life partner, Tom Rosol, and their cat, Gilbert.
