Kellye Joiner, DVM, PhD

Dr. Kellye Joiner is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathobiology at Auburn University.  She received her DVM degree in 1998 and PhD degree in 2006 from AuburnUniversity.  Herpostgraduate residency and research training in avian diseases and veterinary pathology was completed under the direction of Dr. Frederic J. Hoerr.  Dr. Joiner’s doctoral research was recognized by the American Association of Avian Pathologist through the Reed Rumsey Student Award for the Advancement of Avian Medicine. 

Currently, Dr. Joiner teaches in the veterinary professional curriculum and serves as a collaborative research pathologist for several investigators.  Her interests in diagnostic pathology include avian, zoologic and wildlife diseases.


Research Interests

Dr. Joiner’s research focuses on genetic resistance or susceptibility to several common poultry diseases, including bacterial skeletal disease complex, chicken infectious anemia and infectious bronchitis.  Dr. Joiner is currently involved in collaborative efforts investigating the pathogenesis of infectious bronchitis virus in commercial chickens.  In addition, she serves as a study pathologist investigating protozoal diseases in cattle.
