J. Halper
Augusta University
Augusta, GA
Dr. Jaroslava Halper is a Professor of Pathology with appointments in the College of Veterinary Medicine and the Medical Partnership, both at the University of Georgia, Athens, GA USA. Dr. Halper obtained her MD degree from the University of Toronto and PhD in experimental pathology from University of Minnesota. She did residency in anatomic pathology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Bronx, NY) and Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Most of her research is focused on growth factors, tissue repair and tendon disorders. She was the first one to describe granulin/progranulin growth factor (as transforming growth factor e). More recently, her research turned to so called equine degenerative suspensory ligament desmitis, a progressive chronic disorder leading to lameness and pain in horses. Her seminal work showed that inappropriate accumulation of proteoglycans in connective tissues as the hallmark of this disorder. Currently, her lab is working on further elucidation of this debilitating entity.
