W.G. Van Alstine, DVM, PhD

Effective July 1, 2000, Dr. Stephen Hooser will be assuming much of the leadership role as Assistant Director of the Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory.  This change in leadership will allow me the time to resume my duties as a pathologist and to pursue a new direction in research at the ADDL and within the School of Veterinary Medicine.

I consider it an honor and a privelege to have served the past ;18 months as Assistant Director.  The faculty and staff of the ADDL are a dynamic group and are dedicated to excellence in veterinary diagnostics – service, teaching, and research.  They are a tremendous asset to Indiana veterinarians, the Indiana animal-owning public and our Indiana animal industries.  I thank Drs. Thacker, Rebar, Woodson and Lechtenburg for the opportunity to serve as Assistant Director; I have enjoyed the challenge of ADDL administration.

Dr. Hooser is a toxicologist and a Diplomate of the ABVT.  He received his DVM degree from the University of Illinois in 1982 and his PhD degree from from the same school in 1989.  He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology and the Chief of Toxicology Services in the ADDL.  He has several active research projects in toxicology and has been active in the area of toxicology in several national and international organizations such as the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians.

I’m sure Steve will do an excellent job in helping Dr. Thacker with the leadership of the ADDL.  I hope you will joint me in welcoming Dr. Hooser to this position and lend him all your supports.

As always, we are just a phone call, fax, or email away.  Let us hear from you!
