Dr. Dwight Bowman has dedicated his life to helping companion animals by studying the parasites and diseases that affect them. A professor of parasitology in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, his influence extends far beyond the Ithaca campus.
On Feb. 11, the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) presented Bowman with a lifetime achievement award at a virtual ceremony — honoring him for outstanding achievements in the field of parasitology and recognizing his vast contributions to veterinary research and education.
“Dr. Bowman’s impact on parasitology and his dedication to community engagement have had a profound, positive influence on the field at large,” said Lorin D. Warnick, D.V.M., Ph.D. ’94, the Austin O. Hooey Dean of Veterinary Medicine. “I am very pleased to see his commitment and many contributions to veterinary parasitology recognized by the CAPC.”
