Congratulations to Kilmer Soares and Dylan Ricke for this award to pursue a project on zinc exposure and the honeybee gut microbiome.
OSU’s Infectious Diseases Institute (IDI) was featured in a film at the American Public Health Association Annual Meeting for its collaborative and interdisciplinary work on SARS-CoV-2. This film features Dr. Mike Oglesbee, director of the IDI, Dr. Linda Saif, Dr. Gene Oltz, Dr. Joe Tien, and Dr. Vanessa Hale.
Coming to a Scientific Reports near you….
Divergent immune and microbial metagenome profiles of stressed gestating mice may trigger detrimental inflammatory signaling at the maternal-fetal interface. These changes may be linked to aberrant neurodevelopment of the fetus.
Well done, team!
The team: Adrienne M. Antonson, Morgan V. Evans, Jeffrey D. Galley, Helen J. Chen, Therese A. Rajasekera, Sydney M. Lammers, Vanessa L. Hale, Michael T. Bailey, Tamar L. Gur
Dr. Chris Madden received the 2020 MVPoop award. The award was given by David Minich (the 2019 MVPoop winner). David said of Dr. Madden, “He was a tremendous help organizing the samples and extracting most of the swabs before I arrived last summer, he helped me a ton with QIIME, spent a ton of time troubleshooting and teaching me PCR techniques as we attempted to identify the C. perfringens, and overall has done a ton of work for the lab organizing the sequencing data for both Columbus Zoo and the Denver Zoo.” Congratulations and thank you for all of hard work and team work Dr. Madden!
Kilmer presented his research on the effects of antimicrobials on the bee microbiome to veterinary students in a course lead by Dr. Amanda Berrian.
David Minich and Dr. Chris Madden presented findings from their work on lorikeet enteritis at a Denver Zoo Bird Curator and Veterinary Staff meeting.
Great presentation and great questions all around!
