About Jim Wellehan

Jim is an Associate Professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida. He is a diplomate of both the American College of Zoological Medicine and the American College of Veterinary Microbiologists. He can generally be found in the zoo ward fixing owls and tortoises, and prattling on about dinosaurs, microbial ecology, and phylogenetic trees. He is the veterinarian of record for Santa Fe Teaching Zoo and Lubee Bat Conservancy. In addition to clinical work with the Zoological Medicine Service, he is also faculty in the UF Veterinary Clinical Microbiology Laboratory, and co-director of the Zoological Medicine Laboratory. His research interests focus on evolution and ecology of pathogens of nondomestic animals, with an emphasis on molecular diagnostics and pathogen discovery. He has published 173 peer-reviewed publications and 36 book chapters/invited reviews. Outside of work, he enjoys backpacking, mountain biking, and playing anything with strings and frets. He is happily married to Karen Schaedel and they are the proud parents of Xavier and Elseya. He would like to leave them a world with less racism, sexism, homophobia, and economic disparity that is working to mitigate the ongoing climate change crisis.
