Linking people, knowledge and first-class facilities in the pursuit of scientific discovery, the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine is well positioned to help solve existing and emerging animal and human health issues.
The clinical neurology service at Purdue specializes in diagnosis and treatment of patients with brain disease, spinal cord disease, and disease of peripheral nerves and muscles. In addition to conventional therapies, they have access to many state-of-the-art treatments that are being discovered here at Purdue, and at other institutions around the country.
Dr. Bentley has established a comparative brain tumor research program, and has funded translational brain tumor research. His research focuses on all aspects of brain tumors, including diagnosis by MRI, treatment by surgery and non-surgical therapies, and biomarkers such as a blood test to assess tumor burden before and during therapy. He is also a member of the Purdue Comparative Oncology Program. His other interests include all aspects of neuroradiology.
Together with a colleague in North Carolina, Dr. Fauber has developed a surgical treatment for Wobbler syndrome with the goal of improving treatment options for this syndrome.
