Charlie C. Hsu , V.M.D., Ph.D.
Assistant Professor

Department of Comparative Medicine
School of Medicine
University of Washington
Seattle, WA

P: 543-0474

After receiving a BS in Biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dr. Hsu earned a VMD from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 2002 and a PhD in Veterinary Pathobiology at the University of Missouri in 2007 studying murine noroviruses. While at the University of Missouri, Dr. Hsu also completed a residency in Comparative Medicine and became board certified by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine in 2006. After spending 4 years in the pharmaceutical industry, Dr. Hsu joined the faculty at the UW Department of Comparative Medicine in 2012.

Research Interests

Dr. Hsu’s research interests include the study of murine norovirus infection in laboratory mice and their impact on various mouse research models. He also has an interest in diagnostic testing, rodent health surveillance, and infectious diseases of laboratory rodents.
