Dr. Crossland is a board certified Veterinary Anatomic Pathologist. He shares a dual appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Boston University School of Medicine and an Investigator at the NEIDL. His primary responsibility is the development and optimization of an experimental pathology service that will operate safely and efficiently in in the highest biosafety level (BSL4). His specialization is in comparative pathology and the use of animal models to best mimic human diseases. Dr. Crossland takes pride in closely working with all of the NEIDL investigators and helps address investigators research goals by making the most out of their animal studies. Future teaching goals include the development of a comparative pathology slide seminar for MD pathology residents using veterinary cases to communicate correlates of human and animal diseases. His lab space is also open to graduate students from the Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Department where he provides mentorship in the development and optimization of immunohistochemistry and RNA in situ hybridization techniques to answer complex biological questions asked by NEIDL investigators.
