The novel coronavirus has introduced a wave of hard economic times within the state of Michigan, and students are not immune. Throughout this crisis, DVM and Veterinary Nursing students at the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine have faced the loss of employment, as well as their in-person experiences in clinics and the classroom. These events, and others, have added to students’ financial needs, so the College is promoting its CVM Student Emergency Fund for Give Green Day, MSU’s annual day of giving back.
Newly awarded research from Michigan State University could result in therapeutic and preventative drugs for Alzheimer’s disease. Dr. Jessica Fortin, assistant professor for the MSU Department of Pathobiology and Diagnostic Investigation, was awarded a Drug Discovery Research Starter Grant by the PhRMA Foundation for her research regarding a protein that may be crux in the battle against Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases.
In celebration of Black History Month, the College features Dr. Tracie E. Bunton, who was the College’s first Black female veterinary graduate. She earned her doctor of veterinary medicine degree from the College in 1977. She then went on to complete a residency and earn her PhD in Comparative Pathology from the University of California at Davis, and is a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (DACVP). She also received an associate of applied science degree in fashion merchandising from Parsons School of Design (The New School), and is an accomplished artist who explores African American cultural identity and experience.
Bunton was recently featured by the Multicultural Veterinary Medical Association (MCVMA) and Black DVM Network in their project The First but Not the Last, which highlights stories of Black individuals in veterinary medicine.
As the College celebrates Women in Research this month, we recognize the many scientific contributions of our veterinary alumnae like Dr. Ann Donoghue! She has earned three degrees from MSU: a bachelor’s degree in animal science from the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources in 1983, a doctor of veterinary medicine degree in 1987, and a master of science degree in parasitology in 1992 from the College of Veterinary Medicine. Donoghue also recently established an endowed scholarship to support the next generation of veterinary professionals.
