Research Interest

The primary focus of Dr. Amy L MacNeill's laboratory is to use poxviruses and genetically engineered poxvirus recombinants as novel treatments for cancer. She has a strong interest in promoting the study of dogs and cats afflicted with spontaneous tumors as models for human cancer patients. As a result of her research interests, several canine, feline, and human tumor cell cultures are being maintained and placed into cryostorage in my laboratory. In addition, she has a continued interest in studying host responses to poxvirus infection.
