About Paul

Dr. Avery is Associate Professor of Clinical Pathology. His laboratory studies the early immune events surrounding feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infection as a means to better understand the critical elements in the control of lentiviral infections, notably HIV. He specifically studies CD8+ T-lymphocyte and dendritic cell responses to mucosally acquired FIV and the effects that augment the innate and cell-mediated immune response have on host control of the virus. A second focus is enhanced detection and discrimination of lymphomas and leukemias in dogs and cats. Immunophenotyping and gene microarray analysis are being used to identify prognostic markers in canine lymphocytic leukemias.
