Diesel, Alison individual record
Clinical Assistant Professor

I am a clinical associate professor focused primarily on clinical service to dermatology patients and teaching veterinary students. My teaching interests lie in developing integrated and novel teaching methods to enhance the veterinary curriculum along with clinical teaching to fourth year veterinary students on the hospital floor. Additionally, I aim to spread knowledge on practical veterinary dermatology to veterinary practitioners through various local, regional, and national continuing education lectures. My research interests focus on inflammatory skin disease in companion animals (most specifically feline allergic skin disease), potential clinical applications of microbiome research, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcal skin infections, and applications of radiation therapy in the dermatology patient.
