James A. Serpell is Professor of Animal Ethics & Welfare at the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Pennsylvania where he teaches veterinary ethics, applied animal behavior and welfare, and human-animal interactions. His research focuses on the behavior and welfare of dogs and cats, the development of human attitudes to animals, and the history and influence of human-animal relationships. In addition to publishing more than 100 articles and book chapters on these and related topics, he is the author, editor or co-editor of several books including Animals & Human Society: Changing Perspectives (1994), The Domestic Dog: Its Evolution, Behavior & Interactions with People (1995), In the Company of Animals (1996), and Companion Animals & Us (2000). 

Ben Hart, DVM, PhD, joined the School of Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis after graduating from University of Minnesota, and has been there ever since. Ben developed the first course in veterinary behavior, the first clinical behavior service and the most active research program in clinical animal behavior in the country. Combining a medical background with behavior, he developed the concepts of sickness behavior, behaviors that defend animals from parasites and pathogens, and the evolution of herbal medicine. He is now leading a research team to investigate implications of spay-neuter for joint disorders and cancers. Ben is a fellow of the Animal Behavior Society and a founding diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists. He is currently distinguished professor emeritus. In 2013 he was the recipient of the American Veterinary Medical Association Bustad Companion Animal Veterinarian of the Year Award.
