Vet Med Faces of Research: Dr. Erik Clary

Erik Clary, DVM, Ph.D., DACVS, associate professor of small animal surgery and bioethics at Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, has been conducting research for more than 30 years. The interest, he says, was first kindled by an undergraduate research project with suckling calves and developed fast as he took on graduate studies and then advanced clinical training that exposed him to the field of surgical research. Advancing surgical science and technologies has been the primary focus of his subsequent research activity conducted in medical academia, the private sector, and now at OSU.
