Serena graduated from the University of Bristol in 2007. Since then she has worked in small animal general practice across the U.K. and Australia, as well as performing voluntary veterinary work in Peru. Serena’s interest in ophthalmology grew while undertaking a rotating internship at the Royal Veterinary College in London. This led to Serena joining the ophthalmology team at the Animal Health Trust, first as an ophthalmology intern, and subsequently as a resident clinician.
Serena enjoys music, film, travelling, and spending time with her family and friends.
Serena is interested in genetics research and recently sequenced the fibrillin-1 gene in cats with primary lens instability (results presented at ECVO Congress 2015). She is currently performing a candidate gene study in Cavalier King Charles Spaniels with corneal dystrophy.
The Animal Health Trust is a veterinary charity, based in Suffolk, which offers clinical referral services and diagnostic testing for horses, dogs and cats in East Anglia, across the UK and internationally. Through its research programmes it develops new diagnostic tests, treatments and vaccines to help thousands of animals.
