Veterinary College Names New Associate Dean of Research

The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine has named Dr. David Anderson as its new Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies. Anderson had previously served as department head of the college’s Large Animal Clinical Sciences for eight years.

While his clinical expertise is in surgery of beef and dairy cattle, sheep and goats, llamas and alpacas, and pigs, his research interests include surgery, pain management, biomaterials, and translational regenerative medicine. Anderson says he’s honored to have the privilege of working with faculty, staff, and students to advance research for human and animal health. “The research communities at UT offer exciting opportunities to solve complex problems through collaborative teams within and outside of the university system.” Anderson says. “My hope is to create a transformative culture where we can accelerate research and its translation for the good of society.”
