Veterinary Pathology at Penn Vet: The Study of Disease in Animals and Its Greater Impact on Humans

Pathologists examine organs, tissues, body fluids cells and molecules to look for clues to disease and injuries. Penn Vet does this same work ... but with animals. We look at how veterinary pathology impacts the intersection of human, animal, and environmental health through extensive disease surveillance. Penn Vet's research has direct influence on agricultural systems, animal welfare/law enforcement (which has important ties to human social welfare), as well as "mad-made" ecosystems on wildlife. To learn more on these research contributions, Host Dan Loney talks with Dr. Julie Engiles, an Associate Professor of Pathology at Penn Vet’s New Bolton Center, and is also the Section Head for Avian and Mammalian Pathology for the Pennsylvania Animal Diagnostic Laboratory System (PADLS) program, on Knowledge@Wharton.
