Jacquelyn Evans, PhD
Dr. Evan's Work
Dr. Jacquelyn Evans’ research program focuses on improving the health of dogs by identifying genetic risk factors for disease, leading to genetic tests to reduce disease frequency, earlier disease detection, and potentially improved therapies. Many canine diseases have human counterparts often caused by the same mutation or mutations in the same genes/pathways. Thus, the information we learn from the dog model may also inform human disease research.
Evans' recent work includes the following publications.
