Joseph W. Camp, Jr, PhD

PROFESSOR, VETERINARY PARASITOLOGY AND PURDUE UNIVERSITY, SECRETARY OF FACULTIES

Dr. Joseph Camp teaches Veterinary Parasitology in the D.V.M. curriculum to the 2nd-year students.  The discipline of Parasitology encompasses a broad array of organisms from single-celled protozoa to multi-celled arthropods.  Parasitic worms are included and some pet owners may have had the experience of seeing such worms in the feces of their pets.  Perhaps more familiar to pet owners are fleas, which are also consider parasites.  Professor Camp has given talks on the general topic of parasites to a local high school class.
