  • 3. I. Change in Environment Faculty retirement: N/A Faculty resignations: Linda Martin; Assistant Professor of Cell Biology; July 1, 2008 Anthony Pease; Assistant Professor of Radiology; September 2, 2008 Doodipala Reddy; Assistant Professor of Neuroscience and Pharmacology; July 2, 2008 Faculty hires: Gabriela Seiler; Associate Professor of Radiology; appointment begins July 1, 2009. We currently have one faculty position open for identified needs in Pharmacology. We are unsure about whether we will be allowed to recruit for this position because of the current budget situation. We have already lost the Stem Cell position that we had begun recruitment for last year. We are anticipating serious budget cuts at the State level which will negatively impact the department. At this point in time we do not know how much of our budget is in jeopardy. This will be a major challenge for the Department and College moving forward. II. Compact Plan: For 2008-2010 the Compact Plan was developed at the College level. III. Diversity Kenneth Adler has been awarded a supplement to his NIH grant for “underrepresented minorities” for Ms. Teresa Green, a graduate student in his laboratory. Prema Arasu, within context of diversity strategies as defined by NCSU Office of Diversity, (http://www.ncsu.edu/ odi/initiatives/Diversity_Advisory.pdf), has: helped coordinate outreach seminars focused on livestock production/biofuels/health with NCSU faculty and students and external stakeholders (through USDA funded award; teamed with CVM Faculty Maria Correa and Isabel Gimeno and CALS faculty Vivek Fellner and Ratna Sharma); served as advisor for newly formed “Minority Association for Pre-Medical Students” Fall 2008; in the process, Dr. Arasu consulted with Dr. Anita Flick and we agreed that this group of students was better served by coming under the umbrella of the NCSU Pre-Health Club. From this experience, Dr. Arasu was also able to help College of Humanities and Social Sciences via Dean Jeff Braden to link with the Pre-Health Club and establish a new chapter for students interested in careers related to mental health (Dr. Arasu served only in facilitating role); served as advisor and coordinator for two undergraduate students interested in international health experiences - one worked with Public Health Foundation of India in New Delhi, India over the summer 2008; contributed to article on CVM women in science and health for regional news magazine, Women’s Edge; completed term (07/08) as advisor to university Graduate Student Association; served as NCSU representative to Research Triangle Global Coordinating Council (organized by RTRP Doug Aitkin/Ted Abernathy); serving on NCSU College of Management Biosciences Management/Industry (external) Advisory Board; connected NCSU CVM as a partner with the national Alliance for Oral Contraception of Cats and Dogs, and with the Global Alliance for Rabies Control. Jill Barnes has contributed to improving diversity: Member, Ad-Hoc Diversity Committee (NCSU CVM); Attended “Advising students of color” workshop April 19; USDA, Veterinary Career Pathways Program, May 2008, mentored six minority students in the program in veterinary anatomy “short course”, consisted of 5 weeks of 7 hrs of instruction/week on the limbs/ thoracic cavity /head /abdominal cavity; SAVE program, NC A&T students, heart dissection lab; won the NCSU Faculty Diversity Award, 2009. Gregg Dean participated in DVM admissions, molecular biology training program, DVM/PhD training program, and GAANN program. Recruited and hired undergraduate minority student, objective is to provide mentorship prior to application to DVM program and participated in ‘Advising students of color’’ workshop April 2008. 3
  • 4. Troy Ghashghaei has hired and advised students, postdocs, and technicians from multiple ethnic backgrounds: Raul Salinas-Mordagon (Technician; Hispanic), Benjamin Jacquet (Ph.D. Student; Belgian), Jihey Lim (Postdoc; Korean), Atif Sheikh (undergraduate; Pakistani background), and Huixuan Liang (Ph.D student; Chinese). He also has an equal distribution of male-to-female ratio in the laboratory. Jorge Piedrahita is a Co-PI in an NIH training grant to bring minority undergraduate and graduates into sciences (PI - Trudy McKay). Program is Initiative for Maximizing Student Diversity (IMSD; http://www.ncsu.edu/grad/imsd/index.php). He is a member of the steering committee and of the admission committee for this program. Dr. Piedrahita participated as a panel member for the BFF (Building Future Faculty) program. Barbara Sherry serves on the Executive Committee for Expanding Your Horizons Workshops, Spring 2009. NCSU invites 400 seventh grade girls, with an emphasis on those from under-represented groups, to participate in a single-day conference to encourage their pursuit of scientific careers. Dr. Sherry organized participation of 60 -100 of the girls at the College of Veterinary Medicine, for workshops developed by colleagues. We scheduled a record 9 workshops at the College of Veterinary Medicine for March 3rd 2009, but unfortunately the conference was cancelled the day before due to snow! IV. Instructional Program Initiatives including curriculum development and program review Curriculum Development MBS faculty are actively involved in the ongoing curricular review and revision. Efforts have been made by faculty to develop and introduce teaching innovations to enhance student problem-solving and communication abilities. This is particularly evident in the selective courses taught at the end of each semester, which provide a variety of offerings, which expand flexibility in the curriculum and new and varied experiences for students. We are continuing to work on changes within existing courses to incorporate molecular medicine into the curriculum. We are continuing to work on the Physiology course (VMA 913 and 923) to include genomics and molecular medicine concepts, as well as to better align the subject matter in order to match more closely with Anatomy. Prema Arasu participated in CVM sub-committee (FCCCE, Subgroup Core led by Dr. Jennifer Neel) on CVM core curriculum reform/assessment. She formed working group to develop a public heatlh focus/courses/track at the undergraduate level at NCSU; applied for sponsorship and was awarded paid slot to attend the July 2008 AACU “The Educated Citizen and Public health” workshop in Crystal City, Virgina/DC (helped obtain matching support from Provost's office and attended workshop together with Dr. Maria Correa, CVM; Gerry Luginbuhl, CALS; Maxine Thompson, CHASS). Our efforts have culminated in the development of the first course, GPH 201, Global Public health, which will be offered by the Dept of Biology, CALS, as an inquiry course in Fall 2009. The second course proposed is a basic course in epidemiology/biostatistics. She formed working group across 6 colleges to develop a Master’s in Development Practice (similar to International Development); co-wrote and submitted pre-proposal to MacArthur Foundation for funds to establish the program with Dr. Heidi Hobbs. We were invited to submit a full proposal but decided to partner with TERI India and other global partners for a stronger application; pending decision on support (Lead at NCSU will be Dr. Heidi Hobbs, Director of the Master in International Studies, CHASS); proposal pending. Dr. Arasu is also working with Heidi Hobbs to develop a professional science master's focused on international development (bridging life sciences, natural sciences, social sciences and management). New course at Ohio State University based on 1 week selective "International Veterinary Medicine" at NC State University CVM. Dr. Arasu delivered a guest lecture on Dec 15, 2008, by videoconference to veterinary students at Ohio State University (course coordinator Dr. Wondwossen Gebreyes). Jill Barnes is developing a summer workshop “Canine Anatomy” designed to aid in transition of incoming freshman students into the professional program. 4
  • 5. Matthew Breen is serving his third year on the FCCCE, which has begun a complete reevaluation of the DVM curriculum at NC State. The activities of this committee required a considerable effort as we moved toward a faculty driven outline for change. Gregg Dean has developed comparative medicine and translational research training program for specialty trained post-DVM PhD candidates. Lloyd Fleisher is an ex officio member of the CVM Curriculum Committee, he has been actively involved in a major revision of the Veterinary teaching curriculum. Dr. Fleisher also serves on a subcommittee charged with devising novel testing paradigms for the new curriculum. John Gadsby wrote 2 new lectures “Introduction to Endocrine Pharmacology” and “Drugs affecting Reproduction”, and presented them in VMB933 Veterinary Pharmacology as a guest lecturer, Fall 2008. Troy Ghashghaei initiated the development of a new format of teaching the Neurophysiology portion of the Physiology course in the first year DVM curriculum. Jon Horowitz developed and was the course coordinator of a new four credit graduate course “CBS771: Cancer Biology” that was completed by thirteen students in the Fall of 2008. This course was taught by six professors, two from MBS and four from the Dept. of Environmental and Molecular Toxicology, and received very strong evaluations from participating students. Dr. Horowitz wrote and presented 40% of the lectures in this course. Lola Hudson - development/initiation of a new on line course in conjunction with Drs. Klesath (Zoology), Hardie, and our medical illustrator. This course is intended to ascertain that incoming students have a certain level of anatomical knowledge and medical terminology before they enter the rigorous professional curriculum. This course was offered in summer of 2008 and Dr. Klesath has received grade information from Dr. Hudson on the veterinary classes being compared for statistical analysis. Chris McGahan continues to redesign curriculum in Veterinary Physiology. Mark Papich serves on the College Curriculum Committee (FCCCE) (term started in the fall of 2007) as the department representative. This committee has been charged with reviewing, reorganizing, and proposing changes in the DVM curriculum to better prepare our future veterinarians. This committee meets every two weeks and the focus on curriculum evaluation will continue into next year. In 2009, Dr. Papich published a new edition of a long-standing textbook for teaching veterinary pharmacology. He was one of the editors for the book, Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, 9th Edition, Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, Ames, Iowa, USA, 1524 pages; 2009. This book is now in its 9th edition and is a standard textbook for teaching veterinary pharmacology to students. In 2009, Dr. Papich was one of the consulting editors for the book, Kirk’s Current Veterinary Therapy XIV, edited by Bonagura JD & Twedt DC, Saunders-Elsevier. This book is a widely-cited clinical textbook used by students, now in its 14th edition. Lysa Posner serves on the subcommittee for PBL (Problem Based Learning), 2008-2009. Ian Roberston’s ongoing improvement of VMB 976 course, for which he is the supervisor, involved generating extensive online quiz material via Blackboard Vista and generating other self directed learning resources. Korinn Saker participated in meetings and discussion groups here at NCSU-CVM pertaining to development of the Wellness Training Program for DVM students. Dr. Saker also participated in the Deans Forum – Innovations in Education (November 2008) to discuss important issues that impact the veterinary curriculum. 5
  • 6. Cliff Swanson was an invited participant and facilitator, AAVMC Educational Symposium, Washington DC, March 13-15, 2008. Jeff Yoder, as course director for CBS565 Fundamentals of Biomedical Sciences, over the past 4 years, has gained an appreciation for the different educational backgrounds that the incoming CBS graduate students bring with them. It became clear that many students lacked an understanding of multiple standard cellular and molecular methods used in biomedical research. As co-course directors, Dr. Matthew Breen and Dr. Jeff Yoder have developed a new 1-credit graduate course to be offered every fall starting in 2009 (currently waiting approval from the Administrative Board of the Graduate School). This course, CBS570, Methods in Biomedical Sciences, will provide a 1 hr lecture each week on a variety of standard methods. Dr. Yoder will be providing lectures on DNA/RNA/protein analyses, PCR, cloning cDNAs, expression constructs, transgenesis, gene “knock- out” models and flow cytometry. Dr. Yoder, as course director for CBS565 Fundamentals of Biomedical Sciences, over the past 4 years, has concluded that the overall course topics and lecture schedule in CBS565 needed to be rethought and reorganized. At a meeting of the teaching faculty for this course, it was agreed that more focus and continuity was needed for the lecture topics and a task force committee was appointed. When this committee met, it was agreed that each of the 5 Concentration Areas within CBS (Cell Biology, Pathology, Pharmacology, Infectious Disease and Population Medicine) should have equal representation in this course. Thus each Concentration Area Leader will be responsible for deciding the 4-5 lecture topics to be included in CBS565 and will identify the appropriate faculty members to present the lectures in this course. We will be implementing these modifications in the fall of 2009. Clinician Scientist Focus Area (CSFA) has been a departmental initiative which continues to develop and grow. Prema Arasu - served as Chair, Steering Committee, One Health Intellectual Exchange Group - committee convened in September 2008; inaugural seminar in January 2009 with subsequent, one seminar a month held at NC Biotechnology Center, targeting students in veterinary and human medicine ( as well as graduate students, public health) from NCSU, Duke, UNC. Dr. Arasu was responsible for selecting topics and speakers. Matthew Breen is the leader of the Clinician Scientist Focus area and as such has continued to identify research oriented DVM students that could be encouraged to become involved in research activities at NCSU. Dr. Breen meet with the enrolled CSFA students one:one on a regular basis to gauge their feel for the program and to monitor their progress in the research aspects of their DVM program. Gregg Dean provided a research experience as a selective for Austin Duncan a freshman DVM student. John Gadsby, coordinator (and presenter) of “Research in Reproduction” research day within the one week “Introduction to Research at CVM” selective (VMB 990D) – Fall 2008. Korinn Saker developed a feline mammary gland organ culture system to evaluate chemotherapeutic and selected nutrients. Dr. Saker also developed and procured funding for two educational programs in Clinical Nutrition. i) IAMS Rotating Nutrition Internship – a 1-year internship training in small animal disciplines as well as small animal clinical nutrition. Initial funding is for 2 years. ii) Nestle Purina Clinical Nutrition Residency – a 2-year clinical training program here at NCSU-CVM. Introduction to Research at the CVM “Introduction to Research at the CVM” (VMB 991D) is offered in the fall semester as a one-week selective and will be required for all students interested in the CSFA. Students are expected to take this selective in the fall of the 1st yr of the DVM curriculum. This selective will be open to any student interested in exploring the possibility of choosing the CSFA. All three departments participate in this Focus Area. In this selective, mentors in the different areas of clinical and basic research experience will present a summary of ongoing projects in their laboratories. This selective will be divided into identifiable areas of research based 6
  • 7. on the group of participating mentors (i.e. oncology, neurology, therio, etc., ideally combining both basic and clinical aspects of research), with each group responsible for presenting their area of interest to the students. Students will be required to interview briefly with three potential mentors during the time of the selective. Students will also be required to prepare a personal statement indicating their personal and academic goals, their reasons for choosing the CSFA, and their reasons for pursuing a particular mentor opportunity. Other Selectives will be chosen based upon the career goals and research interests of the individual student, in consultation with their primary mentor and committee. Students are encouraged, although not required, to take additional research-related selectives (i.e. Molecular Medicine Initiative selectives such as Trangenics, Developmental Toxicology and Teratology and VMB 992E Biomedical Research Experience). Students choosing the Clinician Scientist Focus Area (CSFA) will also declare a clinical interest (equine, small animal, pathology, food animal, mixed animal, epidemiology and public health, laboratory animal) that will give them priority in clinical rotation scheduling equal to that of students declaring a specific clinical focus area. The clinical interest must be declared by the end of the second year. Alternatively, CSFA students may, in consultation with their guidance committee, create a required list of clinical senior rotations. CSFA students will then be given top priority for these rotations. This list much also be completed and approved by the guidance committee by the end of the second year. The following MBS Faculty members are available as mentors in this program: Arasu, Prema Degrees/expertise: PhD, DVM We use dog hookworm parasite as our model to study host-pathogen interactions and developmental aspects of the hookworm nematode. Research in the lab spans the breadth of clinical, animal-based questions to basic research approaches using genomics, molecular biology, immunology, cell biology and the mouse model. For example, one project in the lab is focused on the pregnancy-induced reactivation and transmammary transmission of hookworm infection to nursing puppies. What is the signaling mechanism between the underlying molecular mechanisms and identify strategies of preventing this route of pathogen transmission? Barnes, Jill Degrees/expertise: DVM, PhD My laboratory investigates the role of stress protein expression and it's impact on the development and treatment of breast cancer. Students would be exposed to a number of cellular and molecular techniques such as cell culture, transfections, DNA, RNA and protein isolation, real-time PCR, Western analysis, reporter assays and flow cytometry/cell cycle analysis. Breen, Matthew Degrees/expertise: PhD, C Biol, MI Biol Chromosome aberrations are hallmarks of the instability of the tumor genome. Our research program is focused on the cytogenetics of canine cancers. In particular we have developed molecular cytogenetic tools and reagents that allow us to interrogate canine tumors (individual tumor cells and tumor cell populations) to reveal recurrent chromosome aberrations. We work closely with clinicians and pathologists so that we are able to correlate cytogenetic findings with clinical features such as tumor subtype, tumor progression, response to therapy etc. In this way we have begun to identify chromosome changes in canine cancers that have both diagnostic and prognostic significance. As a consequence we are a) working towards offering the clinician a means by which to improve the sophistication of clinical management of dogs with cancer and b) developing a better understanding of the genes involved in cancer initiation and progression, which may ultimately lead to improved therapies. Dean, Gregg Degrees/expertise: DVM, PhD, DACVP Students will be exposed to in vitro and in vivo work. Mice and cats are used to evaluate immunological responses to novel vaccine strategies and cats are used in the study of feline immunodeficiency virus. Students may be involved in collecting and processing samples, immunological and virologic assays, and numerous molecular techniques. Specific assays may include flow cytometry, ELISA, ELISpot, western blot, cloning, PCR, bacterial culture, cell culture, and bioassays. 7
  • 8. Gadsby, John Degrees/expertise: PhD Students could be exposed to animal surgeries (ovariectomies and ovarian infusions), tissue dissociation, cell isolation/separation and cell culture, steroid and peptide hormone analysis (RIA or ELISA), enzyme activity (protein kinase C) assays, mRNA extraction and analysis by RT-PCR, protein extraction and analysis by Western blotting, microarray analysis and possibly RNA interference (in the near future). Specifically he could partner with Theriogenology (he already collaborates with Carlos Pinto) or Swine (he also collaborates with Glen Almond) faculty. McGahan, Chris Degrees/expertise: PhD The focus of my laboratory is the study of the metabolism of iron in ocular tissues. We are investigating iron uptake and storage in lens and retinal pigmented epithelial cells. These investigations include measurements of a labile pool of iron within the cytoplasm that is thought to be available for participation in generation of free radicals and subsequent cellular damage. It is therefore essential to understand the regulation of the size of this pool, which at this point is almost completely unknown. We are also determining how alterations in the subunit composition of the iron storage protein, ferritin, affect iron storage and the size of the labile iron pool. Tied in with these basic studies of iron movement within cells are investigations into iron’s roles in regulating basic metabolic pathways, including the production of the excitatory neurotransmitter, glutamate. The clinical importance of understanding iron metabolism in the eye is underscored by the fact that dysregulation of iron metabolism and resulting free radical damage have been implicated in cataract formation and in retinal degeneration. Piedrahita, Jorge Degrees/expertise: PhD Dr. Piedrahita's laboratory is primarily interested in understanding the role of imprinted genes in embryo development and in disease, and in the development of transgenic animals for use in human and veterinary medicine, and in agriculture. Towards this end, his laboratory combines techniques in functional genomics, cell biology, embryo manipulation, and molecular biology. Specifically, students would be introduced to a range of recombinant DNA, and genomic technologies as they relate to a clinically-relevant phenotype. Contributions to Selectives: Prema Arasu, Course coordinator for International Veterinary Medicine, 1 week selective, Fall 2008; Course coordinator for “Animal Acupuncture: China”, two week course at Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, May 2008. Makoto Asakawa supervised first, second and third year students in anesthesia selective. Matthew Breen re-offered the full week selective, “Introduction to Research at the CVM” (VMB991D), providing a group of 15 DVM students with a ‘taster’ of the range of research activities ongoing at the CVM. The course is team-taught and covers a variety of research exposures. Dr. Breen met with the class each day and spent time reviewing the course, which allows the development of a good rapport with the students. At the end of the week we have a frank discussion about the good and bad aspects of the course and this session also serves to identify those students who have developed a real thirst for research. Dr. Breen arranged to meet with these students in the following weeks and then seek to match them with a faculty mentor who will help them gain more experience with their developing research interest. Nigel Campbell, VMC 992Z Active Learning in the VTH (students become an active member of the Clinical Anesthesia Service for 2 weeks). John Gadsby, coordinator (and presenter) of “Research in Reproduction” research day within the one week “Introduction to Research at CVM” selective (VMB 990D) – Fall 2008. Jon Horowitz presented a single hour-long lecture in an ongoing selective (VMB 991E Section 004: Transgenics). Nanette Nascone-Yoder, VMB 992 - Developmental Toxicology and Teratology. 8

There are only two of these awards presented each year across the entire university. Accomplishments related to research efforts: (Does not include grants and publications which are listed in Appendix VII (p. 73) and Appendix V (p. 33). Kenneth Adler - A start-up company (BioMarck) that has been licensed through the NCSU technology transfer office has developed a drug based on technology from his laboratory. The drug has been approved by the FDA and is to be tested in human patients suffering from chronic bronchitis starting at the end of April 2008. Phase 2a studies have been started and the first cohort of patients has been finished…data from this cohort will be available in four weeks (end of May). Prema Arasu - Efforts are focused on building multidisciplinary teams (across NCSU colleges and building on life science strengths of CALS and CVM) in area of food safety and security, and zoonotic/emerging diseases. Matthew Breen - During the current reporting period, continued to grow the lab and to explore means to engage other CVM faculty in a broader programmatic effort. As part of this initiative, was nominated and subsequently elected a full member of the UNC-CH Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. This status allowed application for funds through the UCRF mechanism which resulting is a collaborative grant being awarded to Dr. Kristy Richards (UNC), Dr. Steven Suter (DOCS), Dr. Alison Motsinger-Reif (Statistics) and Dr. Breen. This brought valuable UCRF dollars to the CVM and we anticipate that this funding will continue over the coming years. In addition to a number of ongoing funded projects in the lab, Dr. Breen has been awarded $530,000 in new extramural grant income during this annual reporting period. Research activity in this past year has led to 14 peer-reviewed publications in quality journals. On 11 of these Dr. Breen is the senior, co-senior or first author. During the reporting year work has been featured several time on the CVM and NCSU website and also picked up by the local and national media. Editorials/commentaries about recent published findings that human and dogs share evolutionarily conserved genomic changes in comparable cancers appeared in Nature Medicine and the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Gregg Dean - Determined dendritic cell function is compromised by FIV function. Identified strains of lactobacillus that can be used to induce tolerance and others that can be used as vaccine vectors. Cloned two autoantigens associated with canine blistering skin disease. Determined effect or regulatory T cells on FIV disease pathogenesis. John Gadsby - Major progress made in a study designed to determine the temporal and spatial patterns of expression of Endothelin (ET)-1, Endothelin Converting Enzyme (ECE)-1 and ET-receptors (A & B) within the porcine CL throughout the estrous cycle. Major progress made in a study desigend to examine the role of protein kinase C (PKC) in the mechanism by which porcine CLs become sensitized to the luteolytic actions of PGF-2l in vivo and in vitro. Major progress was made in the study designed to determine the temporal and spatial patterns of expression of TGF- ligands, receptors and Smads in peri-ovulatory porcine follicles. These data suggest that LH and TGF-. act together to promote luteinization of porcine follicles. Major progress was made in the study to determine the temporal and spatial patterns of expression of apoptosis-associated genes in the porcine CL throughout the estrous cycle. Major progress made in studies to examine 10

Administration and Staff Personnel Department Head, Associate Dean of Research and Director of Research and Graduate Programs, Associate Vice Provost for the Office of International Affairs, Director for the Comparative Medicine and Translational Research Center. A complete list of Administrative and Staff Personnel appears in Appendix II (p. 27). New Faculty Appointments Gabriela Seiler; Associate Professor of Radiology; appointment begins July 1, 2009. Staff: A total of 26 SPA employees and 38 non-faculty EPA employees worked in the department this past year. The overall performance of this staff in supporting the teaching, research and professional service activities of this department is excellent. The staff complement currently stands at 19 with 2 new appointments, 6 resignations and 1 transfer to the Graduate Program. The non-faculty EPA currently stands at 27 with 8 new appointments, and 11 resignations. IX. Recommendations and concerns for the future The Department will continue to pursue updating the curriculum with an emphasis on molecular medicine and in enhancing the Clinician Scientist Focus area with the development of new Selectives. In addition, the Department will continue to encourage efforts in Translational Research, specifically with an increase in emphasis and support (time and resources) of meaningful Scholarly Activity of faculty who have a significant clinical effort. Many MBS faculty members of the department are members of the Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research and make contributions to the Center. Our ability to continue to grow extramural research funding continues to be challenging. This is especially with the anticipated loss of two open faculty positions, and SPA staff positions due to cuts in the State budget. However, with the new Administration and the Stimulus package we have an opportunity to obtain significant Federal resources for our faculty. NIH has been given an unprecedented $10.4B from the ARRA funds. Awards will generally be made directly from the NIH institutes. These grants mechanisms include infrastructure upgrades, a multimillion dollar core equipment proposal, individual administrative supplements and bridge grants. Many MBS faculty members are applying for this funding, the full extent of which will not be known until 19
  • 20. the fall. Fortunately, hospital revenue has not decreased significantly so far this year and is thus a positive factor in the departmental budget and is due to the hard work and dedication of the Clinical faculty. However, despite our past successes, the impact on the Department of continued pressure on both the state and national budget is of grave concern for the future. The effect of these economic pressures may eventually result in less flexibility in supporting research programs, difficulty in raising funds for faculty start-up packages, an inability to provide assistance to faculty for the purchase of equipment, and less available funds to provide technical and teaching support in the Department. It is important that the MBS department continue to maintain a financial “war chest” of at least $250K in order to off-set the negative impact of reductions in the state budget. However this is only a temporary solution, deep cuts in our budget from the state of North Carolina can only be offset for one-two years, then our cash reserves could be used up, and we will have to make alternative budgetary plans in order to bridge productive programs and help them survive through future tough times. X. University’s Five Focus Areas 1. Producing leaders for the state, nation, and world Adler - Numerous leadership positions held by Dr. Adler: chair of numerous study sections, invited speaker at numerous meetings and at different academic, industrial and government institutions.

Dean - (This program addresses #1 and #2) The Comparative Medicine and Translation Research Training Program is a newly created program that targets individuals trained as veterinarians (have already earned a doctorate in veterinary medicine, DVM) and that have specialty training. This means they have completed a residency in specialty area such as pathology, internal medicine, dermatology, ophthalmology, etc. In this program, individuals will earn a PhD and will focus on the use of animals in research for the purpose of generating knowledge, drugs, therapies or diagnostic techniques that will direct application to veterinary and possibly human patients. The unique combination of training will equip graduates to become leaders in biomedical research. This program is the first of its kind and as such represents an innovative approach to meet the national need for veterinary scientists. Horowitz - Jimmy V/NCSU Cancer Therapeutics Training Program. 3. Improving health and well being Adler - A drug developed from Dr. Adler's research and licensed through the university to a start-up biotechnology company (BioMarck, Raleigh, NC) is now in phase 2a human clinical trials and could become a new treatment for chronic bronchitis in the U.S. and worldwide. Arasu - We will continue efforts initiated in 2008 to provide a public health track and courses to undergraduate students towards a national movement focused on 'The Educated Citizen and Public Health'. We are also beginning a new initiative to create a ‘Health and Wellbeing’ portal for NCSU. The Triangle Global Health Consortium has been formed and is focused on recruiting a Director for fund raising and coordination of institutional efforts. Breen - Research in Dr. Breen’s lab is identifying regions of the canine genome that are associated with response to therapy in cancer patients. Simultaneously, we are translating these canine changes to the human genome and further testing corresponding region of the human genome for their association to prognosis. Dean - The Center for Comparative Medicine and Translational Research (CCMTR) was conceived and implemented by faculty that recognized strong multidisciplinary collaborative teams are necessary to accelerate translational research. Translational research is process of moving laboratory observations into the clinical setting through the creation of new therapeutics, vaccines, diagnostics, and biomedical devises. The Center concept was proposed in 2003, given permission to organize in 2005 and was formally recognized as an official UNC Center by the Board of Trustees in February 2006. The CCMTR has at present over 100 tenure-track faculty representing 16 departments from 5 colleges, with approximately 50% of the participants residing on the Centennial Biomedical Campus. In addition to the traditional biological disciplines found in the Colleges of Veterinary Medicine and Agriculture and Life Sciences, truly multidisciplinary collaborations come through the addition of faculty with expertise in biomedical engineering, biomedical textiles, mathematical modeling, non- traditional statistics, chemical engineering, molecular modeling and more. This brings together faculty that speak different scientific languages but share the desire to bring medical solutions to the clinic. In the short time since it’s inception, the CCMTR has accomplished the following: provided incentives and support to encourage truly multidisciplinary collaborations and accelerate the translation of laboratory research to improved patient 21

Nascone-Yoder – Dr. Nascone-Yoder’s lab conducts federally funded research aimed at understanding the etiology of birth defects. Posner - Veterinarians are major contributors to maintaining the world’s heath through food surveillance and biosafety (bacterial, viral and toxilogical). The training of the next generation of protectors is vital. Sannes - Continues work directed toward understanding the role of alveolar epithelial differentiation in pulmonary fibrosis. Sherry - Continued collaboration with ImmunoBiosciences, Inc. Conducted investigations of ImmunoBiosciences’ vaccine technology for efficacy against influenza infection in a mouse model. Expanded our proteomics efforts in our on-going collaboration with Research Triangle Institute, in our effort to identify novel cardiac responses to viral infection. Received continuation of NIH funding for this research Thrall - We are assessing the biologic effects of tumor hyperthermia in terms of alteration of tumor physiology that may be beneficial, and the optimum manner in which to prescribe hyperthermia. Results of these studies have the potential to refine the use of hyperthermia as a cancer treatment modality in animals and humans. Yoder - The research in Dr. Yoder’s laboratory includes basic functional studies of evolutionarily conserved novel immune response genes. These functional studies will likely form the basis for clinical based studies investigating the roles of these genes in human disease. Ultimately, an understanding of how all genes contribute to the response to and recovery from infection will promote better drug designs for improving human health. 4. Fueling economic development Arasu - Linked with the above mentioned ‘health and wellbeing’ portal for the university, Dr. Arasu will be working with other colleagues/units on campus to improve extension, outreach and economic development related to the health sector at NCSU. Sherry – Dr. Sherry’s graduate student (Jennifer Zurney) was hired by a NC company (Burleson Research Technologies, Inc.), which performs fee-for-service assays. 5. Driving innovation in energy and the environment Arasu - Our USDA International Science and Education award for 2008-2012 bridges sustainable livestock production practices with biofuels and environmental and public health. This is a joint effort between faculty in CVM and CALS; Dr. Arasu is the PI on this award that will also link NCSU with regional stakeholders and our partners in India. 22

  • 31. Appendix IV Clinical Services Offered by Departmental Faculty Anesthesiology: There are currently 4 MBS faculty members who provide Anesthesiology service to the VTH, Drs. Lysa Posner, Cliff Swanson, Nigel Campbell and Makoto Asakawa. They participate in teaching a number of courses in the DVM curriculum that are administered by the MBS department including VMB 930 Principles of Anesthesia, VMB 977 Clinical Anesthesia, VMB 913 Physiology I, and VMB 923 Physiology II. The anesthesiology faculty are responsible for overseeing the training and clinical service activities of residents, students, and hospital staff anesthetists delivering clinical anesthesia services in the VTH, and directly supervise these activities while on duty. Primary emergency coverage is provided by two anesthesia residents and five VTH staff anesthetists. The four faculty anesthesiologists split the responsibility for backup consultation with the primary emergency coverage personnel. This assignment requires the faculty anesthesiologist covering backup call duty to be available to the primary personnel for consultation and guidance after normal hospital hours during weekdays, and during weekends and holidays. Clinical Pharmacology: Mark Papich has no direct clinical assignment (that is, responsibility for patient care). However, he is the faculty supervisor of the VTH Clinical Pharmacology Laboratory (Room C-268). This laboratory supports one hospital technician at 0.5 FTE. His supervision of this laboratory carries with it the responsibility for clinical service emanating from approximately 1,500 samples per year for monitoring of drug concentrations and various hormones in patients subsequent to therapy. Many of these samples require direct consultation with the clinician in charge of the patient. In addition to the service work associated with responsibility of the Clinical Pharmacology Laboratory, as the VTH Clinical Pharmacologist, he receives consultations each day via phone calls and e-mail consultations from anywhere in the U.S., and direct requests for consultation from our own clinical faculty. For more information: http://www.cvm.ncsu.edu/vth/vthsupportclinicalpharmacology.htm Radiology: The Radiology faculty comprises Drs James Brown, Jim Douglass, Ian Robertson, Gabriella Seiler and Don Thrall. Dr Brown is Director of the Radiology Residency Program, Dr Robertson is Radiology Service Chief. Dr Seiler joined the faculty in July 2009. The Radiology service requires two FTEs each day, one radiologist directing ultrasound and one radiologist directing all other imaging modalities. Radiology is fully digital in all modalities, across all species. The Radiology Information System (RIS) catalogues over 115,000 studies and the service generates over million images a year. Radiation Oncology: There are two radiation oncologists who provide support to radiation oncology. Dr. Amy Pruitt (DOCS) is the major contributor, and Dr. Donald Thrall (MBS) provides backup support when needed. Radiation therapy is a critical component of cancer treatment for many animals, and this service is a part of the overall oncology effort in the veterinary teaching hospital. There is a residency training program in veterinary radiation oncology and one trainee completes the program each year; these trainees have all been successful in becoming board certified in radiation oncology and have gone on to an academic career, or to a specialized veterinary practice. Residents in medical oncology, and students rotating through the oncology service, also receive instruction in the practice and principles of radiation oncology. Radiation therapy is also a component of some prospective trials of new cancer therapy methods that have the potential to improve response of both animal and human cancer to treatment. Clinical Nutrition: Dr. Korinn Saker (boarded in Veterinary Clinical Nutrition) joined the MBS faculty in Feb. 2007. She has no direct clinical assignment (that is, responsibility for patient care). However, she is the director of the VTH Clinical Nutrition Consultation Service and faculty supervisor of the Nutrition Research Program (Room B 219D) at the CVM. The clinical nutrition program has been recently established (March 2007). It provides a variety of nutrition services for both small and large animal critical care patients, chronic disease patients, and recommendations for appropriate life-stage and performance/production feeding management protocols for in-house cases. As part of the clinical nutrition service, she is initiating an Obesity Management Program for overweight and obese companion pets. In addition, she receives consultations each day via phone or e-mail from referring veterinarians, pet owners and producers requesting nutrition- related information about appropriate diet choices, feeding guidelines, recent media concerns, homemade diet formulations and evaluations. 31
  • 32. In July 2008, this program expanded to include a nutrition-focused rotating internship training position and residency training program in clinical nutrition to begin in July 2009. The nutrition research program currently focuses on relationships between nutrition and specific oxidant-directed disease states including cancer and obesity. Toxicology: Dr. David Dorman joined the CVM this year and is a Boarded Veterinary Toxicologist. He is currently working to redevelop the poisonous plant garden by the pond as an important adjunct to the Veterinary Toxicology course which he teaches. Dr. Dorman was hired as Associate Dean for Research and Graduate programs and is a faculty member in MBS. 32
