The Mouse and Comparative Pathology Unit is part of the Department of the Animals Medicine and Surgery of the Veterinary Faculty of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. The UPMiC was created in 2006 to carry out histopathological studies for the support of research groups of our faculty and external groups.


The service is made up of veterinary pathologists who have extensive experience in general anatomopathological diagnosis.

Currently, the UPMiC is made up of pathologists with diagnostic experience in veterinary pathology and specialized in murine pathology, in animal models of disease, dermatopathology and neuropathology:

Rosa M. Rabanal (Biologist, PhD)
Dolors Fondevila (DVM, PhD, DECVP)

Research support technician.
Ester Blasco (Veterinarian, MSc)

We count on the collaboration and external advice of Professor Martí Pumarola (DVM, PhD, DECVP), a member of our team since its inception, as a specialist in neuropathology.
