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.
New to the CVM Family: Meet Marine Traverson
For Marine Traverson, coming to North Carolina was like coming home. She grew up in France, about an hour from the Atlantic Ocean, and even though she’s lived in many different places, North Carolina immediately felt the most like Brittany and Nantes, her hometowns. Traverson also enjoys NC State’s collegial atmosphere and the diversity and
