Spontaneous Animal Disease Models
Dr. Hawkins' research is concentrated on the study of chronic bronchitis in dogs. Additional areas of study include the development of practical pulmonary diagnostic tests (particularly bronchoalveolar lavage), and the use of bronchoalveolar lavage to investigate drug disposition and immune function within the lung.
