VMX Industry Luncheon Lecture: Oxytocin, Vasopressin, and Social Behavior in Dogs

January 20, 2019 - 12:00-1:30 pm

Oxytocin and vasopressin are hormones that play important roles in emotions and social behavior.  Studies in the last decade have begun investigating the roles of these hormones in dog behavior, and in relationships between dogs and humans.  Dr. Evan MacLean, Assistant Professor in the School of Anthropology at the University of Arizona and Director of the Arizona Canine Cognition Center, will present studies investigating the roles of oxytocin and vasopressin in dog behavior, and dog interaction with humans.  Dr. MacLean will discuss how and why these hormones may contribute to the health effects of human-animal interaction, and highlight exciting new directions for research on these questions.

The lecture, sponsored by Purdue Veterinary Medicine and Elanco Animal Health, will be held during the Veterinary Meeting & Expo (VMX) on January 20, 2019 from 12:00-1:30 p.m. in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando South.  Attendees must be registered for the VMX conference in order to attend.

Building Capacity to Ensure Innovative Solutions to Emerging Animal Welfare Challenges

May 15-16, 2019

A recent Council for Agricultural Science and Technology taskforce report on farm animal welfare identified multiple emerging challenges for U.S. animal agriculture. These include the need for improved understanding of the role of animal welfare in sustainability, antimicrobial resistance, global developments, urban agriculture and assessing animal mental states. This symposium will explore the ways in which diverse people and perspectives can enhance the quality of science and the impact of research and engagement programs required to address these key areas of need. Experts in animal welfare science will explore these and related topics along with participants from land grant, private and Minority Serving Institutions of higher education as well as different sectors of the agricultural sciences and industries, and their partners in veterinary medicine. In addition to information-sharing, participants will have the opportunity to participate in working break-out sessions where they will network and identify needs and collaborative partnerships aimed at building capacity to more effectively diversify and grow the discipline to develop innovative solutions. Because student and stakeholder engagement is critical to build capacity and develop novel approaches in animal welfare science, these audiences are particularly encouraged to attend.

This program is presented by the Purdue University Center for Animal Welfare Science in collaboration with Tuskegee University, North Carolina A&T State University, and the University of North Carolina.
