The Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health brings together ten MSU labs that make up Michigan's only comprehensive animal health diagnostic center.

The new facility consolidates labs, offices, and classrooms into a single structure where over 1.5 million diagnostic tests are conducted each year on samples to determine the presence of such diseases as bovine tuberculosis, West Nile virus, and chronic wasting disease.
