Vet Med Researchers Meet Potential Collaborators

February 20th, 2014

ImmuneCellThe Biomedical Sciences department at CVM has a history of collaboration with researchers across campus in fields as varied as engineering, pharmacy, and public health. On February 10th, the OSU Division of Health Sciences held a seminar inviting scientists to describe their work with a goal of creating even more opportunities for sharing resources and ideas.

CVM researcher Dr. Patrick Chappell spoke about his work on the biological clock’s effect on reproduction and cancer; Dr. Jennifer Warnock, small animal orthopedic surgeon, spoke about mensical tissue engineering; and Dr. Jan Medlock described his work using mathematical models to optimize vaccine allocation.

Dr. Natalia Shulzhenko was interested to learn that Dr. Russel Turner, Professor of Public Health, is working with mast cells. “Mast cells are immune cells and, among other things, have shown to be important in Type 2 Diabetes, which I study,” she said.

In addition to getting a good overview of ongoing research in the Division of Health Sciences, Dr. Stephen Ramsey, Assistant Professor in Veterinary Medicine and Engineering, made some useful contacts at the Linus Pauling Institute (LPI). “I connected with Balz Frei at LPI, and he suggested several LPI faculty whose research areas could potentially connect with mine,” he said. “We have planned for me to give a seminar at LPI sometime this year.”
