Jamie Ahloy Dallaire
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Comparative Medicine
Bio Dr. Jamie Ahloy Dallaire received his B.Sc. in Biology from McGill University (2004-2007), in Montréal, Québec, then went on to study the behavior and welfare of captive animals with Dr. Georgia Mason at the University of Guelph, in Ontario. There, his M.Sc. work (2008-2011) pertained to abnormal repetitive behaviors and environmental enrichment in American mink and in Asiatic black bears. In his doctoral research (2011-2015), Dr. Ahloy Dallaire studied the developmental benefits and functions of play in mink and in lambs. Since 2015, he has been working on automated behavioral assessment of pain in laboratory mice, with Dr. Joseph Garner in the Department of Comparative Medicine at Stanford University.
Dr. Ahloy Dallaire's animating purpose is to decrease the negative impacts of biomedical research on laboratory animal welfare, and to deliver better outcomes for human patients through improved research. He believes that good welfare makes for good science, and that these two goals can be achieved in conjunction through a focus on the 3Rs: the principles of replacement, reduction, and refinement in laboratory animal research (hhttp://nc3rs.org.uk/the-3rs). As an applied ethologist, he specializes in behavioral assessment of animal emotions and behavioral animal model development. He also collaborates with preclinical and clinical researchers on aspects of experimental design and statistical analysis to help them conduct powerful and informative experiments, while limiting overall animal use.
Dr. Ahloy Dallaire's work has been recognized with awards from organizations including the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Universities Federation for Animal Welfare, and the Ontario Graduate Scholarship. He is a member of the International Society for Applied Ethology, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, and the Stanford Medicine Teaching and Mentoring Academy.

Professor of Comparative Medicine and, by courtesy, of Pathology at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research interests: ocular pathology, host-pathogen interactions in infectious disease, infectious disease in frogs, phenotypic characterization of tg and ko mice, histopathology of minimally-invasive radiological ablation techniques (focused ultrasound, cryoablation).
Paul Buckmaster, DVM, PhD

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Mechanisms of epilepsy, especially temporal lobe epilepsy.
Linda C. Cork
Professor of Comparative Medicine, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on inherited neurologic disease in animals and on animal models of aging and neurodegerative diseases such as Motor Neuron Disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig's disease) and Alzheimer's disease.
Associate Professor of Comparative Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab looks at the organization and function of central neural pathways that underlie directed manual behavior. We are specifically interested in how these pathways adapt following injury, and use a combination of approaches in monkeys to identify mechanisms mediating neural reorganization and behavioral recovery.
Associate Professor of Comparative Medicine at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests His research interests include infectious diseases, particularly zoonoses, and exploring techniques which promote the health and welfare of laboratory animals.
