Laboratory of Veterinary Anatomy

Laboratory of Veterinary Anatomy

The Laboratory of Veterinary Anatomy is dedicated to the in-depth study of canine anatomy, focusing on gaining a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental body structures using dogs as models. In addition, the laboratory specializes in comparative veterinary anatomy, where the intricate anatomical features of various domesticated animals, including horses, cattle, pigs, dogs, cats, goats, and chickens, are explored. These investigations are conducted through a combination of precise dissection, tactile examination, and direct visual observation.


Recently, Professor Hwang has been focusing on investigating the intricate mechanisms that drive adult neurogenesis in animals undergoing the processes of aging and/or ischemic damage. Meanwhile, Professor Yoo is actively engaged in the development of therapeutic approaches targeting neurodegenerative diseases.
