Calling All Canines: Companions Still Needed For Dog Aging Project Research, New Studies

There are almost 90 million dogs living in the United States.  So when the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) and University of Washington (UW) School of Medicine launched the Dog Aging Project (DAP) in November 2019 seeking canine participants, the research team knew owners across the country would answer the […]

CVMBS Graduate Student Receives Fellowship To Study Genetic Drivers Of Breast Cancer In Norway

With a love for both computers and biology, Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) graduate student Dr. Daniel Osorio has found the perfect fit to improve the study of cancer through his work in the field of computational biology. As a recipient of the 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Research Fellowship, Osorio […]

Texas A&M Research Uncovers First Known COVID-19 UK Variant In Animals

The United Kingdom variant (B.1.1.7) of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has been detected for the first time in a dog and a cat from the same household in Brazos County, Texas, as part of a study led by researchers at Texas A&M University. The first reported finding of the B.1.1.7 human variant virus […]

CVMBS Genomic Research Supports Sustainable Harvesting Of Atlantic Herring

An international team of researchers including Dr. Leif Andersson, a professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS), and Minal Jamsandekar, a Ph.D. student in the CVMBS Biomedical Sciences program, have used whole genome sequencing to document 53 herring populations from the Atlantic Ocean and the Baltic Sea. These data […]

NIH Funds CVMBS Studies On Alcohol Use, Vaping During Pregnancy

A novel testing method and a first-of-its-kind treatment are at the center of two new National Institutes of Health (NIH) Research Project Grants recently awarded to Dr. Jayanth Ramadoss, associate professor and director of the Perinatal Research Laboratory in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences’ (CVMBS) Department of Veterinary Physiology & […]

Texas A&M Researchers Discover Energy Drinks’ Harmful Effects On Heart

A team of researchers led by Dr. Ivan Rusyn, a University Professor in the Veterinary Integrative Biosciences (VIBS) department at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS), has found that some energy drinks have adverse effects on human cardiomyocyte-like cells, or the muscle cells of the heart. In the study, published […]

Criscitiello Appointed CVMBS Research, Graduate Studies Associate Dean

Dr. Michael Criscitiello, a comparative immunologist and professor in the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology (VTPB), has been appointed associate dean for Research & Graduate Studies at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS). Criscitiello, who previously served as the assistant dean for Research & Graduate Studies, has been a CVMBS faculty […]

Study On Rabbit Brain Reveals Genetic Markers Of Domestication

An international team of researchers led by Dr. Leif Andersson, a professor at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS), has found changes in gene expression patterns across the brain between wild and domestic rabbits, which likely contributed to the evolution of tameness during domestication. By demonstrating that domestic animals acquired […]

Texas A&M Research Team Receives USDA Grant To Develop Innovative Wildlife Monitoring System

A research team led by the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) has been awarded a Conservation Innovation Grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to develop a new artificial intelligence-based wildlife monitoring system. The Conservation Innovation Grant program, under the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, supports the development of […]

CVMBS Researchers Develop State-Level COVID-19 Response Model

A team of researchers at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) and the Texas A&M School of Public Health (SPH) has developed a model that predicts at a state-level the non-pharmaceutical intervention needs of states to mitigate risk and contain COVID-19 as they reopen. This transmission dynamic model—which evaluates the […]
