Until I arrived at the University of Wyoming in November 2005, I had been head of pathology for 21 years in a veterinary diagnostic laboratory. Research commitments during this previous tenure were more studying the pathology, including comparative aspects, of naturally occurring neurological diseases in animals. Other collaborative projects included 1) evaluation of new drugs and modes of delivery for the treatment of liver transplant rejection and ways of targeting bone marrow stem cells to specific tissues. Both of these projects are ongoing. Of interest to neuropathology and neuroscience, a percentage of patients receiving liver transplants develops a neurologic syndrome of undetermined cause and unrelated to transplant failure, rejection or, other common complications.
