About Me

I facilitate the use of large animal preclinical models in the translation of medical innovations into therapies that improve patient outcomes. My areas of focus include preclinical surgical models, telemetry device implants, vascular and intrathecal access port implants, medical devices, novel therapies, radiation injury, burn and excisional wound healing models, disease models, and novel or complicated anesthetic models.

I am the Assistant Director of Preclinical Translational Services, an on-site research support team dedicated to providing surgical, clinical, and technical expertise for a wide variety of grant-funded and industry-sponsored research studies.
