  1. 1. Campus Animal Resources: Perspective on Large Animal Biomedical Research F. Claire Hankenson, DVM, MS, DACLAM Director, Campus Animal Resources; Professor, Pathology & Diagnostic Investigation, CVM; Michigan State University fclaire@ora.msu.edu January 21, 2016
  2. 2. Campus Animal Resources (CAR) Mission  Provide high quality veterinary care, animal husbandry and regulatory support services for the academic colleges that conduct biomedical research  Initiatives:  Preserve animal health and welfare  Provide best possible approach to regulatory oversight of animals in biomedical research  Maintain, improve and guide construction of animal housing facilities  Streamline billing and ordering services for research personnel  Deliver training opportunities (in person, hands on) for working with rodents and other species in research  Modernize animal facilities and operations (to be competitive in comparison to other research institutions)
  3. 3. Cohorts Impacted by MSU Large Animal Research Support MSU Principal Investigators Mission for ‘Global Impact’ Hiring Targeted Recruitments • Concerted movement to translational work in larger animals from rodent models:  surgery  neoplasia  reproduction  cardiovascular • Interest from faculty that want to explore ex vivo bioengineering concepts in large animal models • 100 proposed hires to MSU in next 5 years  Assumption that percentage will be animal researchers that will transfer programs to MSU • Requests from existing faculty to known colleagues at other institutions  Relocation of significant animal research programs from originating institutions Must take into consideration the current limitations…. Facilities, surgical and veterinary support, technical expertise, etc
