Service

Directed service to veterinary practitioners, small animal owners and commercial producers as a diagnostic pathologist is my major responsibility at Kansas State University. Diagnostic service as a gross and histopathologist is provided to clinicians serving the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital and referring veterinarians from the state of Kansas and several other states. Directed service activities are closely integrated with teaching and research activities. Cases presented to the Diagnostic Laboratory serve as a source of teaching material for veterinary students and pathology graduate students and residents, and are source material for both retrospective and prospective research projects. I also supervise the immunohistochemistry and histotechnology laboratories.

Teaching

My primary teaching responsibility is as course coordinator in charge of scheduling and organizing a teaching program for the senior veterinary students as they rotate through the diagnostic laboratory. The program involves instruction in necropsy techniques, interpretation of pathologic findings, collection of specimens, and understanding the principles of available diagnostic tests.

Research

Areas of research include canine and feline blood groups and blood typing, iron metabolism, the acute phase response, and application of immunohistochemical techniques for diagnostic and research problems.
