Sophie Bogers, BVSc, MVSc, PhD, DACVS-LA, Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Bogers developed a strong interest in animal athletes during her childhood in New Zealand. She received her veterinary degree from Massey University, New Zealand and then completed an internship and internal medicine fellowship at Hagyard Equine Medical Institute in Kentucky. Her experiences in the Thoroughbred capital of the world spurred her to investigate physiologic and pathologic bone density alterations in Thoroughbred racehorses as part of her Master’s degree at Massey University. She completed a three-year residency-training program in equine surgery at Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center, followed by a two-year fellowship in emergency surgery and critical care and became a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (Large Animal) in 2016. Dr Bogers has completed a PhD that developed a proprietary technique of stem cell culture to increase anti-inflammatory properties of equine bone marrow derived stem cells for amelioration of synovitis and osteoarthritis. She is a proponent of One Health and hopes to continue to benefit both animal and human health through regenerative medicine research and clinical veterinary applications.
