Dr. Micah Bishop

After completing his veterinary degree at Ross University in 2005 and a subsequent large animal internship at the University of Minnesota, Micah enrolled in the PhD program at the GI Lab. His PhD project involves the investigation of hereditary pancreatitis in Miniature Schnauzers. He has found 3 genetic mutations to-date and is currently evaluating them to see how they cause disease. He is also interested in Canine Schistosomiasis and is the first to develop a PCR assay for detection of the parasite. This test is proving to be the most sensitive way to diagnose this condition. He lives with his wife, Aubrey (also a veterinarian) in Houston with their dog Henry.
