Dr. Leonor Sicalo is currently a PhD student, working under Dr. Ray Kaplan’s supervision at the Department of Infectious Diseases, in the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia. Dr. Sicalo earned her DVM at the University of the Republic (UdelaR) in Uruguay, in 2017. She then pursued an 18-month residency at the National Institute of Agriculture Technology (INTA) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. There, she obtained her degree as a specialist on animal health through the association of veterinary practitioners from Buenos Aires province (CVPBA). Prior to engaging into the research program at the Kaplan Lab, Dr. Sicalo worked as a veterinary clinician on different ruminant production systems from Uruguay and Argentina. She also gained hands on training in bovine, ovine and equine parasitological diagnosis at the Parasitology Laboratory in INTA Balcarce, Argentina. Currently, her research focuses on anthelmintic resistance in gastrointestinal nematodes, mainly from cattle and small ruminants. She’s eager to make contributions to improve parasite control in ruminants, since she firmly believes in the need to promote sustainable approaches.
