Welcoming Dr. Chelsea Landon to Our Faculty

Please join me in welcoming Chelsea Landon, DVM PhD to the Department of Pathology as a Medical Instructor.   Dr. Landon earned her PhD in the Department of Pathology in 2013 under the mentorship of Dr. Mark Dewhirst.  Her graduate research focused on the use of hyperthermia to enhance drug delivery and anti-tumor efficacy. After earning her PhD, Dr. Landon attended North Carolina State University of College of Veterinary Medicine and earned her DVM in 2017.  She then returned to Duke as a Laboratory Animal Resident/Postdoctoral Associate in the Division of Laboratory Animal Resources (DLAR).

Dr. Landon was recently awarded an NIH K01 career development award titled “Utilizing intranasal immunization to induce a cytotoxic T lymphocyte response and reduce metastatic burden in the lung.”  She will focus 75% of her effort on her laboratory research, while she will devote 25% of her effort as a laboratory animal veterinarian in Duke’s DLAR.   Dr. Landon will perform her laboratory research in the  Staats Lab.
