Dr. Ingrid H. Sarelius obtained her PhD in Physiology from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, in 1978. She has recently retired from her position as Professor of Pharmacology and Physiology, and of Biomedical Engineering, at the University of Rochester. Her main research interest is in peripheral vascular function; during her career she developed several new techniques for studying the microvasculature in health and disease. She has authored over 85 original peer-reviewed scientific studies, as well as many book chapters and invited reviews. She is a past President of the Microcirculatory Society, has served on a variety of national and international scientific committees, and recently retired from being Senior Editor of the prestigious Journal of Physiology.
Ingrid has been owned by dogs all her life; she was given her first puppy, an English Cocker Spaniel, when she was not quite five. As a teenager in New Zealand she showed, bred and trained Shetland Sheepdogs, and showed and trained WH Fox Terriers and English Cockers. Since coming to the USA she has been involved in a variety of ways with her first love, gundogs. She has been interested in Flat-Coated Retrievers since childhood, and in 1995 imported the first of several from Scotland. She participates in field work, conformation, obedience and agility, and serves on the Sharon Myers Health Committee of the Flat-Coated Retriever Society of America.
