Laboratory Animal Medicine: My focus is on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases in animals and animal models used as subjects in biomedical and agricultural research activities.

The goal, broadly stated, is to:

(1) Support animal research - the scientific study of animals, usually in a laboratory, for the purpose of gaining new biological knowledge or solving specific medical, veterinary medical, dental, or biological problems.

(2) Advocate for animals through the application of veterinary medicine and animal science to the acquisition of laboratory animals and to their management, nutrition, breeding, disease treatment and management of pain and distress.
