Mentor: Dominique J. Griffon, DVM, PhD; Western University of Health Sciences
Dr. Taguchi received his veterinary degree from the Osaka Prefecture University in Japan and completed a small animal surgery internship at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology.
Dr. Taguchi will study the influence of donor’s age on canine adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells at Western University of Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine, where he is currently a graduate student. Dr. Taguchi’s long-term goals are to address challenges currently faced in orthopedics as a clinician scientist, using sound research design to advance the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and well-being of small animals.
