Joyce Knoll, VMD, PhD, DAVCP (Clinical Pathology), Interim Department Chair, Associate Professor, and a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Pathology. She took part in the Veterinary Research Scientist Training program at the University of Pennsylvania, earning her veterinary degree in 1984 and her PhD in 1987. She completed a rotating small animal internship at the Angell Memorial Animal Hospital, in Boston, MA, and then did her clinical pathology residency training at the University of Wisconsin, School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Knoll has been a member of the Cummings faculty for the last 26 years, where she focuses on teaching DVM students in didactic courses and clinical rotations, provides clinical pathology service to the Cummings Veterinary Medical Center, and participates in collaborative research projects revolving around hematology, clinical chemistry, or cytology testing.

I am interested in veterinary hematology, cytology and clinical endocrinology. Previous investigations focused on clinical application and validation of diagnostic tests and/or instrumentation for use with veterinary specimens. I played a role in validation of an ACTH assay for diagnosis of hyperadrenocorticism in horses and ponies. I have also evaluated several automated hematology instruments and some automated hormone assays using a chemiluminescent based system. More recently I have been focused on development of innovative teaching techniques.
