PVM and BME Scholars Team-up to Pursue Affordable Cervical Cancer Test with Life-preserving Promise

Friday, February 3rd, 2023 - Cervical cancer killed 342,000 women around the world in 2020. According to the World Health Organization, the vast majority of these women — about 90% — lived in low- and middle-income countries where access to testing for early detection is either unaffordable or nonexistent. Professor of Comparative Pathobiology Sulma Mohammed in the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, and Purdue’s Marta E. Gross Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering Jacqueline Linnes are determined to save lives by developing a low-cost, point-of-care paper test that could revolutionize cervical cancer detection worldwide.



Purdue Veterinary Medicine is Well Represented at Indiana Pork Producers’ Event

Friday, February 3rd, 2023 - Each year, the Indiana Pork Producers Association hosts the Taste of Elegance to bring talented chefs together for a competition designed to encourage more frequent use of pork in creative, non-traditional ways in menu items. The prestigious event at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in Indianapolis also provides the opportunity for people connected to Indiana agriculture to get together and spend two hours gliding around the dance floor, sampling, and voting on the finalists’ dishes and recognizing the evening’s award winners. This year the occasion attracted more than 450 pork farmers, lawmakers, ag industry leaders, and other dignitaries, including representatives of the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine.



New Grant Funds Purdue Study that Uses Brain Imaging to Measure Human-Dog Interaction

Friday, January 27th, 2023 - The Human-Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI) and Pet Partners have announced a grant to fund a Purdue University research project that will investigate the impact interacting with a dog has on human brain activity. Researchers, led by Dr. Niwako Ogata, associate professor of animal behavior at the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine, will use Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) to measure the neural responses correlating with human-dog interaction, and potential factors that influence these responses.

A Holistic Approach: Enhancing Well-being and Boosting Productivity in Dairy Cows

Monday, December 12th, 2022 - Indiana is home to more than 800 dairy farms, generating an average of nearly $700 million in direct farm income annually, according to the Indiana State Department of Agriculture. The average dairy cow produces around 2,320 gallons of milk per year, but metabolic disorders can affect that output as well as animal well-being. Dr. Rafael Neves, assistant professor of food animal production medicine in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, studies the link between subclinical hypocalcemia and hyperketonemia with systemic inflammation in cows.
