Research Interests

Veterinary education, in situ diagnostics, rickettsial disease research, clinical pathology.

Areas of research in the Wamsley lab include (1) in situ diagnosis, both DNA-based and immune-based, of bacterial infections and cancers, (2) collaborative translational and clinical research with faculty of the Colleges of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine investigating the etiopathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of human and animal diseases, and (3) collaborative research with industry to validate automated diagnostics intended for use by veterinarians in practice.  Dr. Wamsley is also very active in providing continuing education to veterinary professionals both locally and internationally and in personal outreach via public radio and local public school volunteerism.

Research Interests

Areas of research interest and publications have included erythrocyte metabolism of domestic animals, Heinz body hemolytic anemias, serum haptoglobin alterations in disease states, iron deficiency anemia, methemoglobinemias, myeloproliferative and lymphoproliferative disorders, developmental hematology and iron metabolism in foals, hematology and iron metabolism of pregnant mares, and infectious agents of blood cells. Infectious agents studied include Mycoplasma haemofelis, Cytauxzoon felis, Anaplasma platys, Ehrlichia canis, Anaplasma phagocytophilum, Babesia canis and Leishmania donovani.

A longstanding area of interest is inherited defects of erythrocyte metabolism in domestic animals. Publications have resulted from in depth studies of clinical cases of pyruvate kinase deficiency in dogs, methemoglobin reductase deficiency in dogs and cats, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in horses, and flavin adenine dinucleotide deficiency in horses. Extensive experimental studies have been conducted on erythrocytes and muscles from adult and neonatal phosphofructokinase-deficient dogs. A new area of study focuses on the clinical chemistry and hematology of Florida manatees.
