One Health Lecture - April 11, 2018
In honor of Dr. Roger Mahr
Dr. Lawrence B. Schook
College of Veterinary Medicine
Room 2226 Vet Med
Dr. Lawrence B. Schook focuses on comparative mammalian genomics and applications for biomedical models. Dr. Schook led the international pig genome-sequencing project, which led to critical insight into diseases. The laboratory uses comparative genomics to study animal health and development across species, including: most recently human cancer using swine liver models; changes in gene expression during growth in young dogs compared to aged animals to identify pathways impacting wellness in aged animals; the interaction of animal health and nutrition via in vitro gastrointestinal epithelial systems to study changes in gene expression during responses to pathogens; and mucosal development to explore gene expression and regulatory signals from endogenous microbiota promoting epithelial differentiation.
From 2011- 2016, Dr. Schook was Vice President for Research at the University of Illinois for the three campuses (Urbana-Champaign, Chicago, Springfield). Then, Dr. Schook returned to faculty research, and is the Gutgsell Professor of Animal Sciences, Urbana, IL. He also holds professor positions in: Bioengineering, Pathobiology, Nutritional Sciences, Pathology, and Surgery; the Institute for Genomic Biology; and is an Affiliate of the Beckman Institute, Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory. His education was Postdoctoral Fellowships, 1978-1981, Institute of Clinical Immunology, University of Berne, Switzerland and University of Michigan School of Medicine, Ann Arbor; Ph.D., 1978, Wayne State School of Medicine, Detroit, Michigan; and B.A., 1972, Albion College, Michigan.
Further seminar details will be forthcoming.
