Professor Frank Galey,
Dean, College of Agriculture and Natural Resources
My administrative responsibility provides leadership for the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. The mission of The College of Agriculture at the University of Wyoming is to be the proactive leader in education and scholarship to cultivate healthy, sustainable systems for Wyoming's agriculture, environment and natural resources, and rural communities. Our vision is to serve people through the application of the land grant principles of learning, engagement, and discovery. I am particularly interested in helping our college to serve Wyoming's people through extension and applied research, success for our students, and securing adequate resources to accomplish our tasks. Accomplishing these tasks has made me an avid student and hopefully now, mentor for others, of leadership, negotiation, and transparent management.
Professionally, I am a veterinarian with a PhD and specialty certification in pharmacology and toxicology. I have research and clinical service interests in the fields of diagnostic and forensic medicine, plant and other natural product poisonings, and analytical toxicology. Research and service milestones include development of interpretable analytical screens for plants containing potentially toxic alkaloids and cardiac glycosides; as well as for pharmaceutical residues in dairy animals and race horses. My latest research involved seeking a reliable assay for botulism in affected animals and humans.
When not at work, I enjoy rock climbing, mountaineering, downhill and cross country skiing, reading, hiking, fishing, and camping
