PANEL DISCUSSION DESCRIPTION

Description to follow soon.

Dr. Miller graduated from Louisiana State University in 1982. Following graduation he completed an internship in small animal surgery and medicine in 1983 at Auburn University where he remained to participate in an ophthalmology residency and Masters of Science degree program. He completed board certification with the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists in 1986. From 1986 until 1991 he served as an assistant professor with Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. In 1986 he started the first specialty practice, Advanced Animal Eye Care, in Memphis TN and that practice continues today. His research interests include corneal wound healing specifically intra and intercellular communication. He is actively engaged with several pharmaceutical companies in ocular drug development and serves the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists as chair of the Governance Committee. When not at work he enjoys gardening, running, and bow hunting.

Eric Ledbetter is a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists and the James Law Professor of Ophthalmology at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, he completed a small animal medicine and surgery internship at Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and a comparative ophthalmology residency at Cornell University, where he joined the faculty in 2006.

Dr. Ledbetter's research interests include ocular infectious disease, corneal disease, and in vivo corneal imaging techniques. He is a frequently invited speaker at national and international conferences and has published numerous peer-reviewed journal articles, review articles, and book chapters. In addition to research and teaching endeavors, Dr. Ledbetter provides clinical ophthalmology services within Cornell University’s Companion Animal and Equine & Farm Animal Hospitals.

Dr Jonathan Bray graduated from Massey University, New Zealand in 1988 and completed specialist training in Soft Tissue Surgery at Cambridge University, UK, becoming a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Surgeons in 1997. He gained a Masters degree in Veterinary Science in 1990, and a Masters degree in Clinical Oncology in 2013. Jonathan has spent periods of time in both academia and private referral practice since completing his residency, including positions as Head of Oncology and Soft Tissue Surgery at Davies Veterinary Specialists, Hertfordshire (2004-2010), and Head of the Companion Animal Group at Massey University (2012-2017).

Jonathan has active research interests in several clinical areas including soft tissue sarcoma, injection-site sarcoma, endoprosthetics and haemangiosarcoma. He completed a PhD in 2020, which focused on developing better prognostic tools and treatments for soft tissue sarcoma.

The impact of his research typically shares a similar philosophy:

Attempts to improve patient outcomes by identifying new treatment options or using new adjuvant therapies;

Managing patient morbidity by identifying tumours that could be successfully managed with less aggressive surgery, or those that warrant multimodal treatment;

Embracing the concept of One medicine with outcomes of treatment in veterinary patients serving as valuable tools for improving management of similar disease in humans.

Dr. Hamor joined the UF Veterinary College’s Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences in April 2016. Prior to that, he was a Clinical Professor and Ophthalmology Section Head at the University of Illinois, where he had been a faculty member since 1993. Hamor is currently a Clinical Professor and Ophthalmology Service Chief. He also serves as a Medical Director in the UF Veterinary Hospital.

Dr. Hamor's research interests are generally clinical and collaborative. Topics are varied and include case reports, unique clinical treatments and clinical drug effects on ocular tissues in both small and large animals.
