Dr. Collins has been practicing veterinary medicine for 35 years and decided to enter the education field 16 years ago.

Dr. Collins has made many contributions to the field and is known for his knowledge of animal pathology and infectious diseases. He has been fortunate in his career to have identified a means to grow a new virus called porcine respiratory and reproductive virus and develop a vaccine for that virus; he worked with others to describe the pathology and develop diagnostic tests and vaccine in 1989 and the early 1990s that led to several patents and licenses. Dr. Collins has also published more than 100 publications and several book chapters.
Aside from his work at the university, Dr. Collins dedicates his time to Zepto Life Technology, which provides diagnostic services in human and veterinary medicine. As an advisory board member, he assists Zepto Life Technology staff with diagnostic methodology selection and development. His goal is to utilize his skills and knowledge to make Zepto Life Technology a success.
