Parasitologist Dr. Murray Dailey visits center

Dr. Murray Dailey

World renound parasitologist, marine mammal parasitology expert, and author Dr. Murray Dailey visited the NMLC for a full week of meetings and laboratory instruction. Resident veterinarian  Dr. Sea Rogers Williams, who has a special interest in parasitology and is currently identifying and evaluating cases of parasitism in marine mammals with a multi-year federal grant, was thrilled with the opportunity for this type of one-on-one instruction from the most famous marine mammal parasitologist in the world.  “It really helps to validate the work we are doing here, and the ability to work with Dr. Dailey has been a dream of mine for many years.”  The week covered reviews of the major taxons of parasites, working up the challenging cases and review laboratory techniques.
