MSU Research History: Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health

DCPAH

1974 – MSU establishes the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health (DCPAH) in response to an unprecedented number of cattle deaths on farms throughout Michigan, to assist the state in the management of toxic polybrominated biphenyls (PBBs), a fire-retardant chemical that had been inadvertently mixed with cattle feed.

Today, DCPAH is one of the country’s premier veterinary diagnostic laboratories, handling more than 220,000 cases involving approximately 1.5 million tests annually.
