Dr. Michael Sanderson is a Professor of Epidemiology and Beef Production and Associated Director of the Center for Outcomes Research and Epidemiology (CORE) in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State University. He has over 30 years of experience in private veterinary practice and research on beef cattle disease and production.

Dr. Sanderson researches the epidemiology of disease and decreased production in beef operations, and the application of epidemiology and modeling techniques to facilitate good production decision making. Specifically, his research includes using data from beef operations to identify risks and interventions to manage bovine disease. Dr Sanderson and his colleagues at CORE believe integrated data from the cow-calf to feedlot level can help us to understand and manage a number of disease risks, and particularly bovine respiratory disease. They work to collect and utilize integrated data from the cow-calf operation through the feedlot to identify BRD risks and optimal disease management plans. They have recently submitted a grant that will incorporate data from the Block trust to better manage disease.
