Tree Shrew Core

Tree Shrew Core

Directory Category: Core

The mission of the Tree Shrew Core (TSC) is (1) to ensure the availability of tree shrews for eye and vision research at UAB and (2) to expand the use of this near-to-primate animal at UAB and nationally. Because tree shrews are more closely related to humans than are mice and rats, studies in tree shrews have an increased likelihood of providing information that can be translated to humans.
