About Alison

After growing up in Rochester, NY and studying art history at Tufts University, Dr. Manchester moved on to veterinary school at Cornell University. She completed a small animal internship at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. The westward trend continued with a small animal internal medicine residency at CSU. Dr. Manchester is currently working toward a Ph.D. in Dr. Dow’s lab focused on characterizing the immune dysregulation in dogs with chronic enteropathy. When away from the lab, Dr. Manchester enjoys running on trails and roads, cooking, and spending time with her orange and white cat.
