My research focus has been primarily on genetic diseases of animals, especially those that are spontaneous models of similar human genetic diseases. The specific diseases studied include lysozyme deficiency of rabbits, Chediak-Higashi syndrome in multiple species, tyrosinemia in mustellids, familial canine dermatomyositis, ovine GM-1 gangliosidosis, canine Hunter syndrome, and others. Approaches utilized have included genetic, morphologic, biochemical, immunologic and pathologic.
