Associate Professor, Large Animal Internal Medicine
Purdue University

Diplomate: American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Large Animal Internal Medicine), 2006

In 2001, Dr. Taylor earned her DVM degree at Washington State University (WSU), then completed an internship at an equine hospital in Tacoma, Wash. After completing an equine internal medicine residency at the University of California, Davis, she received her board certification in 2006 and returned to WSU where she earned a PhD in immunology in 2010.

In December 2010, Dr. Taylor started her career at Purdue. Dr. Taylor’s love for animals, particularly horses, led her to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. While investigating an equine model of HIV during graduate school, she developed a passion for research, and is especially interested in research that can be applied to both animals and humans.

Dr. Taylor has studied the anti-inflammatory effects of ketorolac tromethamine (KT) in the horse, and is investigating the analgesic properties of KT, phenylbutazone (Bute), and flunixin meglumine (Banamine®) in the horse. Dr. Taylor is conducting research aimed at improving treatments for sepsis in horses and is also investigating the safety and efficacy of using stem cells to treat sepsis.
