Research Interests

Comparative pathologists are key to the success of the “One Health—One Medicine” initiative, a global effort to translate biomedical research findings from animal models to improve human, animal, and environmental health.  My role as Associate Director of the Comparative Pathology & Mouse Phenotyping Shared Resource allows me to support or direct multi-disciplinary “One Health” collaborations in my main areas of interest:

  • Laboratory animal pathology, especially that of
    • animal models of disease (all kinds)
    • genetically engineered rodents
    • mouse and rat embryos, fetuses, neonates, and placentas
  • Neuropathology
  • Toxicologic pathology, especially of
    • biomolecules (nucleic acids and proteins)
    • gene therapy vectors
    • nanomaterials
    • small molecules
