Research/Career Interests: 

My research interests are based upon the development of inflammatory bowel disease in domestic cats. I am primarily interested in the innate and adaptive immune responses to antigenic stimulation in this species. I have worked with the identification of lymphoid populations within the intestinal mucosa and mesenteric lymph nodes of random source cats. With this information, I hope to enable clinicians to better understand gastrointestinal pathology in their feline patients and to allow for better differentiation of inflammatory and neoplastic disorders of the GI tract by increasing the use of immunological methods, such as flow cytometry and immunochemistry, for evaluation of disease. In addition to gastrointestinal immunity, I also have a strong dedication to student teaching, particularly in the areas of clinical chemistry, including acid base physiology, and cytology, subjects which are particularly challenging to students. I work closely with students groups, e.g. the pathology club, in order to generate interest in these subjects and to develop better teaching modalities in order to aid their ultimate grasp of these concepts.

Research/Career Interests: 

My research efforts are currently largely collaborative. I am involved in wide array projects related to clinicopathologic findings in many disease states as well as increasing the sensitivity of diagnostic modalities for differentiation of disease. I have a strong interest in molecular cancer biology and expanding the diagnostic tests available for cancer detection and distinction (e.g. immunocytochemistry and flow cytometry).  I am also dedicated to student teaching, particularly in the areas of clinical chemistry, including acid base physiology, and cytology, subjects which are particularly challenging to students. I work closely with students groups, e.g. the pathology club, in order to generate interest in these subjects and to develop better teaching strategies in order to aid their ultimate grasp of these concepts.
