Since joining the College of Veterinary Medicine in July 2010, the School of Molecular Biosciences has become a larger group of biomedical research scientists with a greater pool of scientific resources. With the help of caring friends like you, we are able to remain on the cutting-edge of infectious disease diagnostics, reproductive health, and understanding the effects of DNA repair on diseases such as cancer.

Our researchers have made significant genomic-based discoveries in several areas including DNA repair, tumor biology, infectious disease, molecular genetics, protein folding, and environmental agents that affect reproduction and development.  These discoveries have created promising avenues for identification of new medically relevant therapeutic targets and agents. SMB scientists have also invented new point-of-care diagnostics for managing human and animal infections that impose significant health and economic burdens.  The school also has a large group of reproductive biology faculty who are internationally renowned for their scholarship and leadership. These highly visible scientists are leading the way in furthering our understanding of fertility problems in humans and animals.

See the 2010 fall edition of the Veterinary Executive Report to read about how collaboration between scientists in the VMP, IPN and SMB is helping to answer questions in biomedical research.
