Katharine F. Lunn

Associate Professor
North Carolina State University

I received my Veterinary Degree (BVMS) from University of Glasgow in Scotland in 1985. I completed a Master's Degree in Veterinary Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1987. My first residency was in Small Animal Internal Medicine and Dermatology, at the University of Cambridge in England. I then returned to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received a PhD in Neuroscience in 1996, followed by a Residency in Small Animal Internal Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I became a Diplomate of the ACVIM (Small Animal Medicine) in 1999 and was a clinical instructor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison until 2001, when I moved into private practice. I worked as specialist in Internal Medicine at the Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center in Waukesha, Wisconsin from 2001-2003. During my time in practice I focused on geriatric feline medicine, and I set up and ran the first private practice I-131 facility in Wisconsin. In 2004 I returned to academia is an Assistant Professor in Small Animal Internal Medicine at Colorado State University. In 2012 I moved to North Carolina State University and I am currently an Associate Professor in Small Animal Internal Medicine at that institution. My clinical interests are in all aspects of internal medicine, but I have focused on renal, endocrine, and metabolic diseases. Research interests have been in renal disease, diabetes, feline acromegaly, hyperthyroidism, hyperadrenocorticism, and canine leptospirosis and influenza. I also have a strong interest in the teaching and mentoring of veterinary students, interns, and residents, and currently serve as the program director for the ACVIM Internal Medicine residency programs at NC State. My didactic teaching topics include clinical reasoning, communication skills, and clinical endocrinology. I have spoken at many continuing education venues throughout the US and overseas, and I also served as a VIN consultant for several years.
