 Research Interests

Our team currently focuses on the use of advanced diagnostic imaging to improve understanding of lower back disease in working dogs. We also conduct research in the area of biomedical publishing and collaborate with other researchers in developing and applying noninvasive diagnostic imaging techniques for use in natural and experimental animal models. I am currently the Director of the Preclinical Assessment Core for the SC TRIMH COBRE.
