In a collaborative effort, the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences and the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University have welcomed Dr. Kenneth Hoyt and Dr. Elaheh Rahbar ’11 to their faculty cohort. Strengthening the partnership between the two groups is a pillar in biomedical engineering’s strategic plan and is […]

Texas A&M Research Suggests Fathers Abstain From Alcohol Use Prior To Conceiving Children

In examining the effects of paternal alcohol consumption on fetal alcohol syndrome, the groundbreaking new study reveals that it can take over a month for negative alcohol effects to wear off. Researchers at Texas A&M University have already shown that paternal drinking habits prior to conception can have a negative effect on fetal development — […]

Texas A&M Receives $1.8 Million NIH Grant To Support Bone Health In People With Down Syndrome

Texas A&M University researchers have been awarded a $1.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study bone regeneration throughout the lifespan to ultimately benefit individuals with Down syndrome. The new INvestigation of Co-occurring conditions across the Lifespan to Understand Down syndromE (INCLUDE) Project grant will help scientists understand whether bone regeneration […]

VMBS Professor Receives 2023 University Professorship For Teaching Excellence

Dr. James D. Herman, a clinical professor in the Department of Veterinary Physiology & Pharmacology (VTPP) at the School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (VMBS), is a recipient of a 2023 University Professorship for Undergraduate Teaching Excellence (UPUTE). He will be recognized at the university’s awards luncheon on April 24. The most distinguished teachers […]

Father’s Alcohol Consumption Before Conception Linked To Brain And Facial Defects In Offspring

Fetal alcohol syndrome-related craniofacial differences could be seen in offspring born to fathers who regularly consumed alcohol to the legal limit. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects in their unborn child. However, research at Texas A&M University now demonstrates that […]

Male Alcohol Use May Be A Crucial, Unrecognized Factor Affecting IVF Outcomes

Research from Dr. Michael Golding’s laboratory at Texas A&M University highlights the need to expand prepregnancy messaging to emphasize the reproductive dangers of alcohol use by both parents. Research from Dr. Michael Golding’s laboratory at Texas A&M University indicates that male alcohol use has a significant negative influence on in vitro fertilization (IVF) success rates, […]

Texas A&M Study Suggests Father’s Alcohol Consumption Has Consequences During Conception

Researchers found that the mother’s placenta is healthier if the father has limited or no alcohol consumption during conception. A father’s alcohol consumption may affect the mother’s placenta and, in turn, the unborn child, according to a new study from Texas A&M University’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (VMBS). Published Aug. 11 in […]

Texas A&M Research Reveals Issues With Fracture Healing In People With Down Syndrome

New research from the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (VMBS) is the first to provide direct experimental evidence that people with Down syndrome (DS) may not heal from bone fractures. The recently published study, led by Kirby Sherman, a Ph.D. candidate in the VMBS’ Department of Veterinary Physiology & Pharmacology (VTPP), […]

New Research By Texas A&M Professor Challenging Long-held Beliefs About Limb Regeneration

Dr. Ken Muneoka has been no stranger to disrupting the field of regeneration; for example, in a 2019 ground-breaking publication in Nature, the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) professor proved for the first time that joint regeneration in mammals was possible. Now, his team is again challenging other centuries-old beliefs […]

CVMBS Distinguished Professor Selected As AAAS Fellow

Dr. Stephen Safe, a distinguished professor of toxicology in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences’ (CVMBS) Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology (VTPP), was recently named a fellow by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society. He will be inducted during the association’s […]
