Scientific Articles 1

[Articles 1]     [Articles 2]     [Articles 3]     [Articles 4]

I have authored or coauthored 65 scientific articles and 77 research abstracts (see Recent Highlights for the latest ). A number of these publications are with investigators in other laboratories. Our collaborative projects were on sheep, goats, deer, cattle, swine, humans and the American Kestrel (a small falcon).

I am deeply grateful to the many students, technicians, research assistants and colleagues who have worked with me over the years. Our combined efforts have enabled my laboratory to make a significant contribution to the vast pool of scientific literature. And...some of the best is yet to come!
