About Aline Rodrigues Hoffmann

I am a board certified veterinary anatomic pathologist involved and dedicated to research, diagnostic pathology, and training of professional students and veterinary anatomic pathology residents. I am particularly interested and passionate about dermatopathology and fungal diagnostics. I am committed to improvement of animal health and have focused my research career on investigating the role the skin microbiome plays in health and disease in companion animals, pathogenesis of infectious diseases, basic dermatopathology, and microbiology. A special area of my research interest is the development of molecular diagnostics for identification of fungal organisms in formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissues and cytology slides. Through many collaborations, I have supported toxicology studies, in particular investigating the effects of air pollution in animal models.
