Tuckerís Trials & Luckyís Back

May 7 - July 19, 2012



Meet Lucky, a dachshund who was treated at the Purdue University Veterinary Teaching Hospital for injuries sustained in a car accident. Lucky will be your guide as you explore how advances in animal health can lead to advances in human health. Discover how the nervous systems of people and dogs are alike. Hands-on activities and a video game help you find out how the nervous system works, what happens when injuries occur, and how to help people and animals with spinal cord injuries.

Tucker, a golden retriever who was treated for bladder cancer at the Purdue University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, is your tour guide for learning about how new medicines are made. Together you will learn about how medicines are first discovered by scientists in laboratories and what it takes to get new medicines approved for use in people. Tucker even made an interactive video to walk you through the phases of a clinical trial.
