Great Presentations at IAAAM

The 47th Conference of the International Association for Aquatic Animal Medicine was held in Virginia Beach in late May. The laboratory was pleased to have had a helping hand in several projects presented at the conference. Two presentations profiled the use of serum amyloid A testing in dolphins. Congratulations to Dr. Jennifer Flower who presented, “Serum acute phase proteins in bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) and correlation with commonly utilized inflammatory indices” and Dr. Sarah Miller who presented, “Serum amyloid A in healthy female bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) during and after uncomplicated pregnancy”.

The laboratory continues to seek collaborators to aid in the validation of these valuable biomarkers in other special species. Please contact Dr. Carolyn Cray for more information.
