Founded in 1950 on a leafy 30-acre campus in Ithaca, New York, the Institute is proud to continue building on more than a half century history of discoveries and innovation in vaccines and infectious disease, reproductive biology, cancer research, and basic biology. Today, Baker’s faculty and research staff continue to study the pathogens and genetic disorders of dogs, cats, horses, and other animals and the underlying causes of cancer in animals and in humans, often leading the science in new and innovative directions.
