Philip Bochsler, DVM, Ph.D., chief of pathology at Wisconsin Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (WVDL), will assume duties as the lab’s new director on July 6.

Dr. Bochsler was chosen as the new director after a national search. Bochsler will succeed Peter Vanderloo, DVM, who has served as interim director since the departure of former director Thomas McKenna, DVM, Ph.D., in September 2014. Dr. McKenna left the WVDL for a new position in Massachusetts.

Darrell Bazzell, UW-Madison vice chancellor for finance and administration, says Bochsler has developed a strong record of leadership, service and achievement since he joined the WVDL management team in 2001.

“With his experience and expertise, Dr. Bochsler is well-suited to move into the director’s position and provide the highest quality of service to the lab, the university, the state and its agricultural community,” Bazzell says.

Bochsler said he is honored to have the opportunity to serve the state of Wisconsin and a world-class laboratory and university.

“I look forward to working with the outstanding team of professionals at the WVDL and with our clients and partners across the state,” he said.

In addition to his duties as WVDL’s chief of pathology, Bochsler is a clinical diagnostic professor in the School of Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Pathobiological Sciences.

The laboratory’s main facility is located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
