Emergencies: 919-513-6911


So that our employees can spend time with their families during the holiday season, the Veterinary Cardiac Genetics Lab will be operating at reduced hours from December 24th through January 3rd. This may cause a temporary delay in test results. If you have an urgent matter, please contact Dr. Kathryn Meurs at kmmeurs@ncsu.edu. Thank you and Happy Holidays!
