My laboratory currently focuses on determining the pathogenic potential and diagnostic utility of serum lipoproteins in domestic species. In two of our on-going projects, we are investigating lipoproteins in the dog, relative to their ability to promote thrombosis in hyperlipidemic diseases (such as hyperadrencorticism) and the progression of renal disease. Another project is underway investigating changes in lipoproteins during various life-stages in dairy cows. We are also investigating the role of the erythrocyte and hemolysis in promoting thrombosis in the dog
