"What Should a Veterinary Epidemiologist Do?"
Tuesday, May 11, 1999
170 Schalm Hall
Martin's research emphasizes the effects of environmental conditions on animal health. Examples include the effects of air quality on respiratory disease in food animals, vaccine-related illness in companion animals, the public health issue of dog bites in humans, and interactions of wildlife with domestic species which may pose risks to animal health.
To recognize pioneering achievements in veterinary epidemiology and encourage future development of that discipline, Robert Dyar, M.D., generously endowed the Lectureship in Epidemiology. Dyar's contribution also reflects his personal gratitude for the companionship he enjoyed with a long series of Labrador Retriever friends and an appreciation of the veterinary care his animals received over the years.
