A Norfolk-based veterinary laboratory has rehired an anatomic pathologist after he took a five-year break from the research facility.

Daren Hanshaw has rejoined Finn Pathologists after five years spent in his native Australia. During this time he passed the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP) board examinations and, as a registered specialist, expanded his expertise to include clinical pathology interpretation and production animal disease investigation.

Mr Hanshaw – who qualified from Murdoch University in Perth in 1987 – owned a practice for several years before working at Murdoch University Veterinary Hospital’s direct access clinic.

In 2005 he sold his practice and moved to the United States to undertake an anatomic pathology residency at the University of Florida, before joining Finn in 2006 as part of its in-house resident training programme. In 2009 Mr Hanshaw returned to Australia to undertake the ACVP examinations before coming back to Norfolk. At the lab he will have a particular interest in dermatopathology and oncology, including lymphoid and histiocytic disorders, it said.

Head of histopathology at Finn Pathologists Mark Wessels said: “Daren brings with him a wealth of experience – not only in pathology, but also in its application.

“His long experience of working in a clinical environment is of value to both practitioners and to the team at Finn Pathologists.”
