Brodersen named NVDC director

Dr. Bruce Brodersen has been named the new director of the Nebraska Veterinary Diagnostic Center (NVDC).

“The NVDC definitely has a bright future with Dr. Brodersen leading our outstanding team of faculty and staff. His experience and record of accomplishment are exceptional. His vision for using our new facility to advance diagnostic service, research, teaching and outreach is sure to have strong impacts,” Clayton Kelling, director of the School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, said.

Brodersen has been part of the diagnostic lab since 1992 when he joined as a pathologist. He’s widely known for his work on diagnostic testing for bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), particularly using immunohistochemical assays of skin biopsies to detect infected carrier cattle. In addition, as a faculty member in the School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Brodersen teaches pathology to veterinary students in the Professional Program in Veterinary Medicine.

As an active member of the Nebraska Veterinary Medical Association, Brodersen has served in a number of leadership positions including president. He was named Veterinarian of the Year by the association in 2016.

Brodersen received a bachelor's and master's degree from Nebraska, a DVM from Iowa State University and a doctorate from the University of Nebraska Medical Center.

Brodersen replaces Alan Doster, who retired last year.
