Dr. Anna McRee is the 2014-2015 Zoological Medicine Intern at Louisiana State University (LSU) School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. McRee graduated with her DVM from the University of Tennessee in 2014, with honors in promoting the field of nondomestic animal medicine. Through her budding career she has sought opportunities to gain research experience that led to being a co-author of a study on liver pathology in exotic felids and receiving a Morris Animal Foundation grant to investigate zoonotic tick-borne diseases in feral canids in Zimbabwe. Anna was just awarded a Competitive Organized Research Program grant through the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine Veterinary Clinical Sciences Department to further investigate the avian stress response. Learning the mechanisms behind even the most delicate of life’s processes thrills her, and her ultimate professional goal is to work at the interface between clinical zoological medicine, public health, and conservation.
