International (AAALAC) since 1975.
Jackson has been with UC since
1996 and had been serving as interim director of LAMS since April. "I
am very happy to be appointed director," Jackson said. "I hope to
continue to keep LAMS an effective and efficient program with our first
priority being to provide excellent veterinary care for our animals."
Jackson received his doctorate of veterinary medicine from Purdue
University in 1990 and attended the University of Michigan from 1993-96
for his post-doctoral work.
