Hayley Valentyne, BSc, MRes, BVSc
Prior to embarking on a career in Veterinary Science, Dr Hayley Valentyne was a molecular biologist, working on projects in plant virology, human immunology and cancer research both within her home country of Australia and the UK. Wanting to pursue a clinical career, Hayley completed her Veterinary degree at the University of Sydney, Australia. Following this she spent some time in small animal general and emergency practice, in addition completion of a rotating internship. Her volunteer work with Pathologists at Taronga Zoo in Sydney sparked a passion for all things Pathology. Hayley now joins the Pathology team at RUSVM as the Intern/MSc candidate and is looking forward to returning to research and working with this talented team of Pathologists and clinicians.
