Research Interest

I have a broad interest in many aspects of veterinary clinical pathology and internal medicine, particularly those that will advance the clinical diagnosis and management of disease in veterinary patients. My particular areas of interest include endocrinology, oncology, pancreatic and hepatobiliary diseases. My previous research has focused on cancer anorexia cachexia syndrome in dogs with lymphoma and the evaluation of associated biomarkers including leptin and ghrelin. I have also been involved in collaborative research in a variety of areas including the evaluation of joint fluid in dogs suffering from osteoarthritis-associated pain to assess the pain alleviating effects and pharmacokinetics of intra-articular injection of NV-08.
