Marine Traverson, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, ACVS Fellow of Surgical Oncology

Assistant Professor, Soft Tissue and Oncologic Surgery


Dr. Marine Traverson received her veterinary degree with honors from Nantes College of Veterinary Medicine in France in 2012, and completed a small animal rotating internship at the University of Montreal, followed by a surgery specialty internship at the DMV Center in Montreal, Canada. She completed her small animal surgery residency and combined master of sciences at Purdue University in 2017, and went on to complete a one-year fellowship in surgical oncology at the University of Florida.

Dr. Traverson is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons, and a member of the Veterinary Society of Surgical Oncology. Through her veterinary thesis and master of sciences projects, Dr. Traverson developed a strong clinical and research interest in biomedical engineering and oncologic surgery, especially limb sparing procedures and osteosarcoma. Her clinical interests also include complex soft tissue reconstructive surgery, and minimally invasive surgery.

While not at work, Dr. Traverson enjoys outdoors activities, traveling and cooking with friends and family. She also has a passion for artistic activities, painting and playing piano.

I am a board-certified veterinary surgeon and surgical oncologist, and my research focuses on the development of innovative approaches to local tumor control in dogs and cats, with translational applications in human medicine. I am particularly interested in novel technologies, including 3D printing, interventional radiology, and drug delivery systems as a vehicle to enhance the oncologic outcome of my patients while preserving their quality of life and function. A large part of my research is dedicated to the elaboration of novel limb-sparing procedures for dogs affected with bone cancer, in light of the advances made in human oncologic surgery. I enjoy multidisciplinary research and maintain strong collaborations with my colleagues at Duke Cancer Institute, and at the Center for Additive Manufacturing and Logistics (CAMAL) at NC State, for which I am an affiliated faculty.
