About Shelley Newman

A graduate of the Ontario Veterinary College in 1990 I spent three years in small animal and exotic practice before returning to the OVC to complete my DVSc degree in anatomic pathology. My research was on glomerular disease in mink as a result of excessive vaccination strategies. From this developed an interest in renal pathology that has continued to this day and resulted in my authoring the renal chapter in Pathologic Basis of Disease by McGavin and Zachary. Additionally, research interests include veterinary neoplasia with special interests in ferret tumors and canine mast cell tumors. I oversee the immunohistochemistry service here at UTCVM and enjoy offering that ancillary test for challenging diagnostic and research cases. I teach in the veterinary curriculum in General Pathology, Microanatomy, Neuropathology and Oncology. I am involved heavily in the day to day interactions with our anatomic residency program and am now the resident coordinator. I am interested in higher administration positions and was appointed Associate Department Head in October of 2014.
