Angeline E. Warner, DVM, DSc, DACVIM

Research/Areas of Interest:
  • Developed and direct Master’s Degree program in Laboratory Animal Medicine
  • Respiratory physiology, pulmonary macrophage function


  • DSc, Harvard School of Public Health, 1986
  • DVM, University of Florida, 1980
  • MS, Univeristy of Miami, 1975
  • BS, Vassar College, 1972


My training is in respiratory biology, specifically the role of pulmonary macrophages in defense of the lungs against infection. Since 2003, I have been involved in higher education in veterinary medicine as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at the Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. As I move on from that position, I am devoting time and energy to programs that can facilitate resiliency and improved behavioral health in veterinary medical students and new veterinary graduates.
