After her veterinary training in North Carolina, Carole R. Baskin, DVM, MSc, CPIA completed a Master's Of Science in Physiology & Immunology of the Ohio State University under the mentorship of Kenneth W Hinchcliff, BVSc, PhD, DACVIM, and now Dean, Faculty of Veterinary Science at the University of Melbourne. She went on to a residency in comparative medicine at the University of Washington and did a concurrent post-doc in the laboratory of Michael G. Kate, Ph.D., with a focus on virology and animal models of infectious diseases, including non-human primate models of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza and the 1918 pandemic flu. This experience fostered her growing interest and expertise in research compliance and regulations. After an assistant professorship at the Biodesign Institute in Arizona and a Directorship of Scientific Programs at Science Foundation Arizona, she is now Associate Professor at the Institute for Biosecurity of Saint Louis University.
