Postdoctoral Fellow, University of Guelph

In 2007, Katie Clow entered into the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program at the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC). During veterinary school, she completed internships at Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Following graduation, she spent a rewarding year in practice at a rural small animal clinic, and then worked as a regulatory veterinarian at the CFIA developing proactive biosecurity guidance documents for goat and dairy producers.

Katie returned to OVC in the fall of 2013 to pursue her PhD in the ecology and epidemiology of the blacklegged tick and the risk of Lyme disease in Ontario. She greatly enjoys research, teaching and service, and hopes to continue her career in academia, and have an active role in teaching and mentorship.

Dr. Clow is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Weese Laboratory at the Ontario Veterinary College. She is also an active volunteer, serving as the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for Veterinarians Without Borders Canada.
