Professor Shane Raidal

BVSc (Syd) PhD (Syd) FACVSc (Avian Health) DipECZM (Wildlife Health)

Shane is an experienced veterinary pathologist with particular interests in invertebrate, fish, reptile, avian pathology and microbiology. With extensive research and teaching experience at the University of Sydney and Murdoch University he has co-authored with 21 post-graduate students over 200 scientific publications on a wide variety of animal health topics. This has included more than 100 peer reviewed publications, 6 books and book chapters and over 90 scientific reports, conference publications and other articles involving more than 100 collaborators throughout Australia, USA, New Zealand, Europe and Asia. This has been supported by $2 million in research grants. He is active in a number of editorial boards for international journals as well as professional organisations and scholarly networks including the Veterinary Information Network.

As Discipline Head for Pathobiology, Shane oversees pathobiology teaching in the middle part of the veterinary course starting from immunology in second year and principles of veterinary pathobiology and systems based pathology in third year. The final year veterinary students also spend three weeks in the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory working with diagnostic cases in parasitology, bacteriology, haematology, clinical pathology, surgical biopsies and necropsy accessions.

Avian Virology

With a long term interest in avian circoviruses Shane has been supported by ARC Discovery Grants to better understand the fundamental mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease as a model for chronic viral infection.

Parasitology

FRDC funded research projects have included investigations into intracellular parasites of pearl oysters in Western Australia.  Recent research into the movement of parasites and pathogens in pigeons of Australia, funded by WEDPP, has discovered a rich diversity of parasite linkages between Australia and Papuan bird species.  Other projects studies on the impact of ectoparasites in seabirds and haemoparasites of Australian native birds.
