Bio:Dr. Gardiner, AKA DG1, received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree from Cornell University and completed his veterinary anatomic pathology residency and Masters of Science (MS) degree at Colorado State University and is board certified in veterinary anatomic pathology by the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. After pathology residency training, Dr Gardiner dove head first into surgical pathology at IDEXX Laboratories West Sacramento lab and eventually became the regional head of anatomic pathology for Canada and the western United States for IDEXX. Wanting to try and do things a different way in the veterinary diagnostic lab industry, with Mr Smith (ZNLabs CFO), Dr. Gardiner and Mr. Smith purchased the Animal Reference Pathology (www.animalreferencepathology.com) division of ARUP Laboratories.
The idea for ZNLabs developed out of running Animal Reference Pathology, interactions with Dr Loar (ZNLabs Co-CMO), Mr Gersholowitz (ZNLabs CEO) and a desire to offer veterinarians a viable 3rd option in the veterinary reference laboratory space. No one was doing anything about it and despite prior unsuccessful attempts (AVRL), we decided to make it happen.
A member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American College of Veterinary Pathologists and the International Society of Veterinary Dermatopathology, Dr Gardiner is particularly interested in pathology laboratory management, ocular pathology, dermatopathology, and oncologic pathology. Dr. Gardiner is an adjunct professor in the School of Veterinary Medicine at Utah State University where Animal Reference Pathology sponsors an annual veterinary spelling bee. Close your eyes and can you spell intussusception?
