James E. Collins

Anatomic pathology as it relates to infectious diseases, agriculture, public health and biomedical research

 

Sagar Goyal

Dr. Goyal's research interests include diagnosis, pathogenesis and control of viral infections in livestock and poultry and the development of methods for the detection and prevention of human and animal viruses in food, water and environment.

 

Connie Gebhart

Main focus is diagnostic bacteriology and development/evaluation of diagnostic tests. Research involves enteric diseases of animals caused by bacteria, especially Lawsonia, Brachyspira, and Campylobacter species.

Calcium oxalate urinary stones represent a painful, debilitating, and costly disease that affects humans and dogs. Our long-term research goals are to understand key factors responsible for calcium oxalate stone disease and develop safe and effective therapies to prevent stone recurrence. In addition to clinial nutritional studies we investigating genetic markers of disease and investigating the microanatomy of uroliths.

Genetics/molecular biology of cancer - understanding heritable risk traits for common canine tumors Cancer immunology/immunotherapy - understanding mechanisms of immune response to cancer in lab, in clinic, back to lab. Current work specifically studying tumor immunosuppressive barrier Lymphocyte activation - intrinsic negative regulation and its role in maintaining lymphocyte quiescence Cancer pathology/diagnostic medicine - stratification of molecular tumor subtypes that are clinically relevant (prognostic and to guide therapy) Pre-clinical (lab animals and spontaneous tumors of dogs) drug development studies for cancer therapeutics (drugs and biologics). Development of FasL gene-based immunotherapy, ligand targeted toxins, antibodies, genetically modified bacterial vectors, targeted nanoparticles carrying gene therapy, small molecules Nicotine immunotoxicology - role of nicotine in lymphocyte activation and in tumro progression

Leslie Sharkey

I perform clinical research focused on developing and optimizing diagnostic testing in companion animal species, primarily dogs and cats. My clinical research focuses on complications of chemo and radiation therapy in laboratory animal models, predominantly effects on heart, blood, and bone. Recently, I am collaborating on some human studies that branch off from the laboratory animal.

Srinand Sreevatsan

I am interested in ecology, evolution, and epidemiology of infectious agents. My group uses a combination of epidemiological, evolutionary, and molecular tools to address - pathogen-host interactions, population genetic structure of microbes, and investigations on molecular mechanisms host adaptation, enhanced transmissibility and virulence.

Troy Trumble

Dr. Trumble in collaboration with Dr. Murray Brown at the University of Florida, established the Collaborative and Comparative Orthopedic Biomarker Research lab that focuses on the use of direct and indirect biomarkers of osteoarthritis in horses. The goal of this collaborative effort is to be able to use biomarkers to diagnose osteoarthritis in its early stages when treatment may have an effect and possibly prevent further progression in both horses and humans.

I have been studying host responses and the underlying basic mechanism in animals and humans infected with avian influenza viruses. We are recently also exploring the emerging novel bunyaviruses that may be present in agricultural animals and pose a threat to animal and human health
