His clinical interests encompass applied clinical physiology and pharmacology, anesthesia, pain management, heart failure, respiratory impairment, fluid and acid-base therapies and the acute care of severely ill or injured small and large animals. He is a mentor and advisor for students seeking advanced knowledge in basic and applied research working toward attainment of specialty practice, academic and corporate research careers. Dr. Muir supervises and conducts a variety of basic and applied research studies that have complied GLP, GCP and GRP standards. These studies are designed to improve animal health and performance through research directed towards the development and application of novel therapies, drug formulations, drug delivery systems, reanimation techniques and physiological monitoring devices.
