Craig L. Franklin, DVM, PhD

Associate Professor, Veterinary Pathobiology

University of Missouri-Columbia
E111-1 Veterinary Medicine Building
Columbia, MO 65211


Dr. Franklin has two primary research foci: 1) Pathogenesis of chronic intestinal mucosal inflammation (i.e. Crohn’s disease, collagenous colitis, irritable bowel syndrome). This includes studies of the role of gonadal sex hormones in modulating mucosal inflammation using a rodent Helicobacter hepaticus infection model. 2) Characterization and study of mutant rodent animal models for human disease. The latter involves several collaborative projects including characterization of a novel kidney disease (glomerulopathy) of oim/oim mice, studies on the immunopathogenesis of multiple sclerosis using mouse models and the phenotypic characterization of genetically-engineered mutant mouse and rat models through the MU Mutant Mouse and Rat Resource Centers.
