New Zoetis-Colorado State University joint laboratory
Zoetis, and Colorado State University (CSU) are establishing a research laboratory to explore the livestock immune system and target new immunotherapies – paving the way for new alternatives to antibiotics in food animals. The new 3,000-square-foot Zoetis Incubator Research Lab will operate at the Research Innovation Center on CSU’s Foothills Campus, Fort Collins, starting in early 2020.
Zoetis scientists will be co-located with CSU’s highly skilled scientists, core labs, research programs and services to seed innovations for livestock animal health. The Zoetis Incubator Research Lab will reside within CSU’s Research Innovation Center, but will be part of the company’s global R&D organization. The initial focus of the Incubator Research Lab will be biotherapeutics for cattle, which could yield broader implications for pigs and poultry.
As part of the new lab, Zoetis expects to hire up to 20 livestock research scientists, immunologists and cell biologists in Fort Collins beginning this autumn.
and diagnostic products, which are complemented by biodevices, genetic tests and a range of services.

In 2018, the company generated annual revenue of $5.8 billion with approximately 10,000 employees. For more information, see https://bit.ly/331YRhf
