From Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital to Morris Animal Foundation, Diane Brown, DVM, PhD, DACVP, returns to Colorado as the Foundation’s new chief scientific officer. Brown is a graduate of the veterinary school at Colorado State University. 

Since 2010, Dr. Brown has been working and teaching in the Department of Pathology and Center for Comparative Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. She brings a passion, knowledge and specific tie to Morris Animal Foundation that not many share. Immediately after graduating veterinary school at Colorado State University, Dr. Brown served as an associate veterinarian at Raritan Hospital for Animals in Edison, New Jersey. Raritan Animal Hospital was founded in 1929 by Morris Animal Foundation’s founder, the late Dr. Mark Morris Sr., who was a Colorado native.

“I arrived at the main hospital in Edison, a long way from my home in Colorado, and the journey began,” said Dr. Brown. “I already was aware that Dr. Mark Morris developed his first prescription diets, at Raritan Hospital for Animals, and thus revolutionized nutritional management of disease in pets.” 

Dr. Brown’s experience in veterinary medicine is broad and includes small animal and exotic animal clinical practice, clinical pathology residency and graduate training in pathology, large pharmaceutical and small biotechnology research and development, and academic research and teaching.
