As a RCVS recognised Specialist in Feline Medicine, I am interested in all aspects of feline internal medicine. However, I have interests and welcome discussion into the possibility of working (including postgraduate qualifications) on the following areas: <br/>1)All aspects of mycobacterial infections in cats and dogs including, aetiopathogenesis, epidemiology, clinical signs, diagnostics, therapeutic protocols and prognostic indicators. I maintain the national data-base for cases of feline tuberculosis and non-tuberculous mycobacterial infections in cats (in collaboration with AHVLA, Drs J Hope, X Donadeu and A Philbey, RDSVS and the Roslin Institute).<br/>2)Other feline infectious diseases including Tritrichomonas foetus, Ehrlichia, Neorickettsia, Anaplasma species, Rickettsia species, haemoplasmas, Bartonella species, and Toxoplasma (in collaboration with Prof. M. Lappin, University of Colorado); the role of Mycoplasma infections in upper and lower respiratory tract disease, with Nicki Reed, RDSVS . I also have interests in newly emerging infectious or potentially zoonotic diseases in cats, and the role of cats as sentinels of infection.<br/>3)Gerontology include multicentre studies looking into aging changes in feline brains, in collaboration with Dr. E. Head of the Institute of Brain Aging and Dementia, University of California and Prof F. Gunn-Moore of the University of St Andrews; studies into diabetes mellitus and lipid disorders in cats, with particular reference to Burmese cats, with Prof. J. Rand, University of Brisbane, Australia; and large epidemiological studies looking at the prevalence and development of cognitive dysfunction syndrome in cats, with Dr Sarah Caney and Vicky Halls.<br/>4)Studies in the pathogenesis and treatment of feline lower urinary tract disease (FLUTD). These involve collaboration with Dr. R. Casey of the Animal Behavioural Unit, University of Bristol, Prof. D. Mills at University of Lincoln, and Jonathan Bowen, Imperial College, London. Studies have been supported by funding from Vetri-Science Laboratories, Ceva Animal Health, and Boehringer Ingelheim Ltd. Associated with this I also have studies looking at the accuracy of methods of measuring urine specific gravity, both in cats and dogs.<br/>
