Research Interests:
As a research assistant in veterinary school, under the direction and support of the faculty ophthalmologists at Texas A&M, Dr. Rogers investigated the canine, feline and equine ocular surface microbiomes in normal and diseases states. As a rotating intern (1st year after graduating with DVM), under the supervision of Dr. Mowat, she was able to investigate the connection between aging and retinal thickness. As an ophthalmology research intern in the Mowat lab, she is investigating the ability of dogs to be a viable proxy model for human aging by creating behavioral somatosensory tests similar to those performed in physician-based medicine.
