    • Laboratory Animal

  • Animal clinical research services: Experimental design, biomedical devices, surgery, anesthesia, IACUC protocols, housing & husbandry.

  • Preclinical trials using animal models of naturally occurring & experimentally induced injury & disease.

  • Imaging & image analysis, 3D reconstruction: CT, MRI, ultrasound, histology, pathology.

  • Pathologist: Dr. Bill Van Alstine, DVM, PhD. Gross and microscopic anatomic pathology.

  • Surgeon: Dr. Lynetta Freeman, MS, DVM, Dipl. ACVS. Minimally invasive surgery. Questions regarding preclinical stages for biomedical devices should be referred to Dr. Freeman.

  • Neurologist: Dr. Rebecca Packer, MS, DVM, Dipl. ACVIM, Neurology. Intracranial/spinal surgeries, electrodiagnostic evaluations, biopsies of muscle/peripheral nerve/brain tissue, CSF taps (spinal fluid).  Neurological exams. Interpret MRI images from brain and spinal cord.
