Joseph Neary takes new position with Department of Animal and Food Sciences
Joseph Neary has been named an assistant professor of animal health and well-being in Texas Tech University's Department of Animal and Food Sciences, according to officials within the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources. He officially stepped into his new teaching and research post on Oct. 1.
The native of Britain indicated that he is particularly interested in continuing his research interest in diseases of the bovine cardiopulmonary system. He is also excited at the prospect of developing and collaborating in multi-disciplinary research within Tech and with other universities.
Neary is a proponent of the One Health concept and believes that animal, human and environmental health are intricately linked. Heart failure in cattle shares many similarities to heart failure in humans; therefore, during his doctorate in bovine congestive heart failure Neary collaborated with researchers in the field of human medicine at University of Colorado Denver and University College London on several pioneering studies.
One of his primary goals here at Tech is to conduct industry-leading research in the field of animal health and well-being and develop multi-disciplinary research collaborations. Through innovative research and student participation Neary hopes to develop the industry leaders of tomorrow by addressing real world issues affecting animal health and well-being.
Prior to joining the Tech faculty, Neary worked as dairy ambulatory veterinarian while undertaking his doctorate in Colorado State University's Department of Clinical Sciences. He also served as a teaching assistant in courses such as veterinary epidemiology, graduate statistics and food animal production and food safety.
Neary received his MA (zoology) and his Vet MB (Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine) from the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. After completing his veterinary degree he undertook an internship in food animal medicine and surgery at Colorado State University. He stayed at Colorado State to complete a master's degree and doctorate degree (clinical sciences).
