My research interests are focused on feline dermatophytosis or "ringworm". This is an important skin disease of cats because it is not only infectious and contagious but a known zoonosis. The Dermatology Research Laboratory is currently working on protocols for the treatment and management of this disease in animal shelters. Current laboratory studies are focusing on evidence based disinfectant and cleaning protocols.
My responsibilities include, but are not limited to: lecture and laboratory teaching in years 1-3 of the veterinary curriculum, small group clinical training of 4th year veterinary students, and lecturer at continuing education conferences for graduate veterinarians and clinical research and publication.
