Jennifer (Jey) Koehler, DVM, PhD, Diplomate ACVP
Dr. Koehler received her D.V.M. from Louisiana State University in 1996. She was engaged in private practice in small animal medicine and surgery for 11 years before returning to Auburn University for a residency in anatomic pathology. She is board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists in anatomic pathology, and holds a PhD in Biomedical Science from Auburn University. From 2011 to 2013 she served as a Clinical Lecturer, and in 2013 joined the faculty as an assistant professor. She is currently the director of the histopathology core laboratory and section chief for the surgical pathology service. She teaches pathology of the endocrine and nervous system in the veterinary curriculum, and teaches graduate courses in neuropathology, oncologic histopathology, and surgical pathology. Dr. Koehler is a member of the C.L. Davis D.V.M Foundation’s Faculty of Discussants, and teaches in this organization’s internationally-renowned Descriptive Veterinary Pathology course and Gross Morbid Pathology of Domestic Animals course. She is currently the session Chair for the neuropathology mystery slide session at the annual meeting of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists.
Dr. Koehler’s research interests include neuro-oncology, animal models of glioblastoma, the role of hypoxia in cancer progression and chemoresistance, and identification of cancer stem-like cells.
