Department of Pathobiology
University of Illinois

I am a clinical assistant professor at the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine in Urbana, ILwith appointments in the Department of Pathobiology and the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.  My responsibilities include teaching, research, and clinical service.
In 2005, I completed a Ph.D./NIH post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Florida, College of Medicine in Gainesville, FL under the guidance of Dr. Richard Moyer.  The research was designed to determine the functions of specific poxvirus serine proteinase inhibitorsduring infection of  natural host species.

While working as a graduate assistant, I completed a veterinary clinical pathology residency at the University of Florida, College of Veterinary Medicine and became a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists in 2003.

Prior to beginning the residency, I practiced veterinary medicine at small animal hospitals in north-central FL and Russell Animal Hospital in Concord, NH.


Research Interest

The primary focus of my laboratory is to use poxviruses and genetically engineered poxvirus recombinants as novel treatments for cancer. I have a strong interest in promoting the study of dogs and cats afflicted with spontaneous tumors as models for human cancer patients.  As a result of my research interests, several canine, feline, and human tumor cell cultures are being maintained and placed into cryostorage in my laboratory.  In addition, I have a continued interest in studying host responses to poxvirus infection.
