April Conference at Purdue University Targets Antimicrobial Resistance

Friday, February 17th, 2023 - Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a significant public health threat globally, and multi-drug resistant infections are predicted to only worsen over time (United Nations Foundation, 2021). Purdue University is taking a multidisciplinary approach to address this critical topic through a free conference to be held on the West Lafayette campus in April, with involvement by multiple colleges, including Purdue Veterinary Medicine. 

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.

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.

Purdue Comparative Oncology Research Center Named for Evan and Sue Ann Werling

Friday, January 13th, 2023 - The Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine now is home to a newly named center for comparative oncology research. In December, the Purdue Board of Trustees approved the naming of the Evan and Sue Ann Werling Comparative Oncology Research Center in recognition of the donors’ $10 million gift.

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.

Improving Food Safety

Monday, December 12th, 2022 - A research team at the Purdue University Cytometry Laboratories, headed by Dr. J. Paul Robinson, Distinguished Professor of Cytometry in the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Department of Basic Medical Sciences, and professor of biomedical engineering in Purdue's Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, is working on a number of separate but inter-related projects funded by grants from the USDA to develop rapid diagnostics for pathogen detection, food safety and organism identification.

Forum and Mini Symposium Anchor Canine Welfare Discussions in Science

Monday, December 12th, 2022 - A two-day Purdue University program on Canine Welfare Science attracted nearly 225 registered participants from across the country.
