She returned to the University of Edinburgh as a Temporary Lecturer in the department of pre-clinical Sciences in 1993, moving to the University of Glasgow in 1994 to complete a PhD position in the Neurobiology group, studying CDRM in the German Shepherd Dog. On completion of her PhD she moved to the Division of Pathological Sciences. She has a central role in both diagnostics and undergraduate teaching as well as collaborative research work. Pamela maintains an interest in neuropathology and is currently involved in collaborative projects investigating trypanosomiasis in a range of species. Equine sarcoids, equine wound healing and feline osteoarthritis are other current areas of interest.
Angie Rupp, DVM, Dr Med Vet, PhD, FRCPath, Dipl ECVP, MRCVS
After graduating from the Ludwigs-Maximilians-University in Munich in 2003, Angie conducted doctoral research at the Institute of Veterinary Neuropathology, also in Munich, in the field of peripheral nerve regeneration in the rat. This was followed by a PhD and a Peripheral Nerve Society-Baxter Fellowship at the University of Glasgow on immune-mediated injury and recovery of the motor nerve terminal in the mouse model of Guillain-Barré syndrome. After completing a residency in Veterinary Anatomical Pathology at the University of Cambridge and obtaining FRCPath in 2016, Angie re-joined the University of Glasgow as a Clinician in Veterinary Pathology and became a Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Pathologists in 2018. Whilst Angie enjoys all aspects of pathology, her special interest lies in the nervous system. She is currently investigating the seroprevalence of anti-glycolipid antibodies in dogs and cats suffering from peripheral nerve and cranial nerve neuropathies of unknown aetiology with a special focus on the use of anti-ganglioside antibodies in supporting the diagnosis of acute canine polyradiculoneuritis.
