Biography

Dr. Lisa Katz graduated from Sweet Briar College in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1990 with a Bachelor of Science in biology and a minor in chemistry. She then obtained her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from the University of Georgia, College of Veterinary Medicine in 1994, following which she completed an internship in equine medicine and surgery at Peterson, Smith, Matthews, Hahn & Slone in Ocala, Florida in 1995. By 1998, Dr. Katz had completed a combined large animal internal medicine residency program and a masters program in equine exercise physiology at Washington State University, College of Veterinary Medicine. Her research focused on the responses of ponies and horses to short-term training and their ventilatory responses to high-intensity exercise. Following this, Dr. Katz worked as a clinical teaching instructor in the equine medicine department at Oklahoma State University, College of Veterinary Medicine. She became a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Large Animal) in 2001, a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in 2002, received an honorary MVB degree in 2004 and was accepted as a diplomate in the European College of Equine Internal Medicine in 2005. In 2003, she completed a PhD at the Royal Veterinary College, University of London investigating the pathophysiology of equine acute laminitis. Dr. Katz joined the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Biochemistry in 2003 as a college lecturer, and then became a lecturer in equine internal medicine in 2006. Her current clinical and research interests include equine exercise physiology, equine acute laminitis and equine neonatology. Some of Lisa¿s more recent publications can be found in the American Journal of Veterinary Research, Equine Veterinary Journal, the Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, the Veterinary Clinics of North American Equine Practice, and Equine and Comparative Exercise Physiology.
