Francisco O. Conrado
Francisco received his DVM Degree from the Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, in his hometown, Porto Alegre, in the far south of Brazil. He remained there for a 2-year residency in Clinical Pathology, before moving to Curitiba for a Masters in Molecular and Cell Biology at the Universidade Federal do Paraná. After completing a second Clinical Pathology residency at the University of Florida, and receiving his board certification from the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP), he moved to beautiful New England to join the Department of Comparative Pathobiology at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. His main interests are cytology, hematology, and clinical chemistry, as well as the clinicopathologic features of infectious and oncologic diseases. When he is not busy teaching, reading cases, or directing the 4th Year Pathology Rotation, Francisco enjoys taking his rescue Pitbull, Georgie, for hikes and grabbing a beer at local breweries.
