Departments & Organizations
My undergraduate work was in animal science pre vet followed by veterinary school where my emphasis was centered on clinical laboratory animal medicine and research. My interest in mouse pathology started while in veterinary school and continued while working as an oncology scientist and attending veterinarian for a biotech company before leaving to study veterinary pathology full time. Training in comparative pathology followed by a graduate study pathology in intercellular signaling preceded my joining Yale in 2004.
My primary roles at Yale are in the arena of diagnostic and collaborative research veterinary pathology where the primary emphasis is on genetically engineered mice. The collaborations involve working closely with post doctoral research fellows and graduate students in addition to investigators on their projects.
Teaching and training people in rodent necropsy and blood collection are also part of my teaching role for Comparative Medicine.
My own research is centered on the development of the WAG/RijYcb Hemophilia A rat model.
