Dr Sameer D Pant

BVSc, PhD, GCLTHE

Sam is a senior lecturer in Animal Genetics at the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences at Charles Sturt University. Sam graduated with a degree in Veterinary Medicine from India, and later pursued a doctoral degree in Bovine Immunogenomics at the Department of Animal and Poultry Science, University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada). He worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Medical Genetics, University of Alberta (Edmonton, Canada) for over two years; and also worked as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Veterinary Clinical and Animal Sciences, University of Copenhagen (Denmark) for another two years before moving to Australia in 2015.
