Research Tambopata Macaw Project – The Tambopata Macaw Project is a long term research project on the ecology and conservation of macaws and parrots in the lowlands of southeastern Peru. The goal of the project is to generate information on wild macaws and parrots macaws and use this information to improve the health and welfare of captive birds and aid the conservation of wild birds throughout the tropics. Research, independent study, rotation and internship opportunities are available through this program.
Teaching Costa Rica Biomedical Sciences program This program provides required “core” courses and key electives for students working towards a degree in Biomedical Sciences along with Pre-Meds, Pre-Vets, and others from any major who want to take a semester abroad while still advancing their degree plan. Students will receive an in depth introduction to Costa Rican and Latin American health, conservation, culture, and nature, then learn and use Spanish through a combination of classes and home stays. Immunology and Physiological Chemistry will be taught with a “Latin flavor” to show how these sciences are applicable to Costa Rica and the world outside the classroom. Students will engage in many field trips to national parks, schools, beaches, clinics, markets, zoo, etc to learn about the health and conservation issues facing Latin America today.

Amazon Field School ABS Field School in the Peruvian Amazon introduces students to the social and biological realities of conservation and research in Latin America. Students have firsthand investigation into key resource management systems, and apply conservation research techniques. Students complete case studies of important resources found in lowland tropical forests of southeastern Peru. Students interact with a mix of native peoples, colonists, conservation organizations, loggers, gold miners, and eco-tourism experts.

Research Brazil: Interest in the presence of pathogenic Borrelia species in sinantropic bats in Paraná, Brazil. Our research team will be acquiring blood and tissue samples from bats as well as ecto-parasites feeding on those bats to analyze the presence of pathogenic Borrelia. Our collaborators in Brazil have found Borrelia spp in bats blood and they are interested in determine whether those Borrelia species are pathogenic for humans and life stock, due to the high density of bats in that particular area, and the impact they can have on human and veterinary health.

Mexico: Study of Lyme disease in Center and Northern Mexico. During the Mid 1990’s there was a number of Lyme disease cases diagnosed in Central Mexico, and the numbers have been increasing considerably during the past few years. Our collaborators are scientist and physicians at the Pediatric Hospital in the Centro Médico Nacioal SXXI (IMSS) The objectives of this project are to analyze the expression of selected Borrelia-virulence markers associated with European and US borreliosis in tissues of potential reservoirs and vectors (ticks), and to determine regions of high-risk for Lyme disease in Mexico. The rationale is: we have documented B. burgdorferi infection in Mexican patients with clinical manifestations similar to those reported in both, US and Europe (Mexico diagnostic reference laboratory, unpublished).

Spain: Study of Membrane proteins of Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease. Our collaborator is at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in the University of Valencia. Their expertise is in the study of hydrophobic domains of proteins and the study of their topology when associated to membranes.

Research Peru: The college has two formal agreements (Convenios) with the main Peruvian Veterinary Schools. Heredia Cayetana and San Marcos. Both commit us to collaborate in the area of avian research and conservation. There are multiple collaborative projects underway in Tambopata, in investigating the wild bird trade and in studying the epidemiology of selected avian diseases.

Argentina: The Schubot Center is supporting a project to determine causes of nestling mortality in the Patagonian subspecies of the peregrine falcon.

Canada: The Schubot Center is collaborating with scientists at the University of Guelph on the detection of avian bornavirus in arctic waterfowl.

Personal Statement As a career immunologist, I have focused on applied immunology, especially on innovative methods of vaccination. Thus I am working on methods of intranasal and oral vaccination against many different diseases. My second major area of interest has been the field of emerging viruses and diseases of wild and exotic birds. Most recently we have focused on the unusual epidemiology and biology of avian bornavirus. Currently however I have come to recognize the critical importance of genomic sequencing and bioinformatics. My major current efforts are studies on the pathogenesis of, and immunity to avian bornaviruses. I have also had many productive collaborations on other vaccines, including influenza vaccines under development by KJ Biosciences. I am uniquely situated in the environment of a major College of Veterinary Medicine to assist this SBIR phase I-II project which involves the critical immunogenicity and protection studies in dogs. My role in this project is to provide assistance and oversight for these studies.

Teaching The Veterinary International Leadership Program (VILP) is a four year international studies program for students in the veterinary professional curriculum. VILP is an educational partnership between Texas A&M, Tufts, and the University of Padova. Each year, twenty veterinary students are selected for the program: 8 incoming vet students to TAMU, 4 incoming vet students to Tufts, and 8 first year vet students at the University of Padova. These students attend six week workshops each summer for the first three years of the program and then complete clinical assignments during the fourth summer. The schedule for these workshops is as follows: First Summer – Physiology Workshop in College Station, Second Summer – General Pathology Workshop in Padova, Third Summer – Public Health and Food Safety Workshop in Padova, and Fourth Summer – Clinical Assignments in College Station.

BIMS Study Abroad – Biomedical Science majors have the opportunity to take three courses while studying in Padova, Italy. Eight to ten undergraduates are selected for this 6 week study abroad program. Courses offered include: Biomedical Physiology I (VTPP 423), Pharmacology (VTPP 425), and Famous Italian Medical Scientists (VTPP 485). BIMS students will attend lectures (labs) with first year and second year veterinary students at the University of Padova. BIMS students will be required to return to Texas A&M University at the end of the six weeks and complete the final four weeks of the Biomedical Physiology I course.

Research Dr. Shannon Washburn is part of an interdisciplinary team of researchers at Texas A&M University that recently received a $1.5 million grant to fund research on placental adaptation to maternal malnutrition. The grant was awarded by the National Institutes of Health’s Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

Teaching Program leader for multiple, faculty-led study abroad programs for TAMU undergraduates and veterinary students in the target countries. The undergraduate programs focus on the history of medicine (human and veterinary) as well as provide a study abroad platform for students to complete required coursework in BIMS, BMEN, and allied life science majors. The veterinary student study abroad program focuses broadly on veterinary medicine in Europe (training, practice, the animal health industry, transnational regulatory and animal health issues in the EU).

Profile I’m very busy these days doing what I love: teaching, writing, and learning. I currently lecture at Texas A&M University, where I help pre-med students improve their writing and revising skills. I’m also a graduate student in cultural medical anthropology, also here at Texas A&M. My research goals are to understand how narrative and storytelling can serve as a cultural bridge to advance Global One Health initiatives. My next major adventure is creating a writing-intensive study abroad course in Thailand, to be offered in summer 2018. The working course title is “Case Studies in Global One Health.” Students will learn about Thai culture and public health, work with elephants and other exotic species, and rescue sea turtles at a sanctuary.
