CVM Publications: Catching Up!

4 May 2017

We recently started doing a monthly announcement on new CVM publications. See the inaugural installment. Because it seemed strange to start with items published in April, we're doing one longer "catch up" announcement to highlight CVM faculty research going back to January. Congratulations to all the 2017 authors!

Below are College of Veterinary Medicine publications added to the Scopus database from January to March 2017.

A note on the links: the doi link will take you directly to the publisher's web page. The PMID link will take you into PubMed; the PMCID link into PubMed Central. Full-text availability will depend on your institution's subscriptions.

Cycle of Success: Gwen Gray, Kate Anderson, and Supporting Entrepreneurship

Gwen Gray
Cycle of Success is the idea that libraries, faculty, and students are linked; for one to truly succeed, we must all succeed. The path to success is formed by the connections between University of Missouri Libraries and faculty members, between faculty members and students, and between students and the libraries that serve them. More than just success, this is also a connection of mutual respect, support, and commitment to forward-thinking research.

Gwen Gray, Business, Economics & Public Poloicy Librarian, spearheads the libraries’ involvement with a variety of programs. Through her work with Entrepreneurship Alliance students, Gwen promotes the libraries as an integral resource for teaching and research. Greg Bier, Director of the Entrepreneurship Alliance, indicates her positive impact. “I just wanted to thank you for working with my Entrepreneurship Alliance students Tuesday,” Bier said. “I think it is very important that they understand the tools right at their fingertips on campus. Unfortunately, not many of them think of Ellis as one of them. I also think you change their opinions. Thanks for being a great help!”

Gwen strives to integrate library resources and services into MU’s entrepreneurship programs. One such program is the Biodesign & Innovation Program. Through her work, Gwen assists Biodesign Fellows as they seek out information and research. The Fellows she works with speak highly of the assistance she provides. “Our Biodesign Filtering presentation tonight was a great success,” one Fellow said. 

Kate Anderson

Kate Anderson is the head of the Zalk Vetinary Medical Library and works with Gwen on a number of projects, including that Biodesign Program and the Coulter Translational Partnership. In Coulter boot camps, teams of physicans and engineeers build their case for funding from the Coulter Foundation. The goal of the Coulter Foundation is to accelerate the translation of biomedical innovations into products the improve patient care.  

Because entrepreneurs need expertise and resources from multiple disciplines, Gwen and Kate collaborate extensively. The biodesign fellows and the boot camp participants often acknowledge Gwen’s and Kate’s teamwork.

  • “I wanted to say a big ‘THANK YOU!’ to both of you for getting us all the information we needed in such a short period of time. You both made the success of [our] presentation possible!”
  • “Thank you so much for checking in with us. It really means a lot to know we have your support!"
  • “Many thanks for your kind help in award.  Really appreciate [Gwen’s] help and Kate’s timely support.”

Team Zalk: Meet the Pets!

Meet the team behind Team Zalk!

Three cats, two dogs, and one rabbit. Oh, how we love our fur-babies! They bring such joy into our lives — how could we not share their fabulousness?

Kate wants you to Meet Trixie!

Laura wants you to Meet Stitch!  Meet Reg!

Sue wants you to Meet Dexter!  Meet Abu!  Meet Shadow!

Enjoy.

A special shout-out to UTK Libraries for the inspiration. #UTKPets

Team Zalk: Meet Reg!

Meet the pets! A look at the team behind Team Zalk!

Name: Reg, which is short for Regulus.

Breed: Felis catus. Domestic Short Hair. I may have some Russian Blue in me because I have very soft thick fur.

Age: I was born June 24, 2008. So, I am 8 years old

Sibling: Stitch

How I came to live with my human: She adopted me from one of the labs at the Vet School.  

Likes: Playing fetch (it’s not just for dogs you know). I bring my toy up to the top of the stairs & my human tries to throw it past me down the stairs. I sometimes like to cheat by moving half way down the stairs. Laying in the garden windows and watching the birds at the birdfeeders. I’ve tried to catch them, but there’s an invisable barrier that keeps me from getting to them.  Guarding the top of the stairs & checking everyone out who visits because I’m a very social feline. I’m also a very laid back and curious cat. I have to check everything out that is new & different. Going outside whenever I can escape on my own, but my human always brings me back in when she catches me (although sometimes she will let me go out with her). Sleeping with my human. Eating, I really like to eat. I love being petted and having my belly rubbed sometimes. I like to annoy the other feline which sometime gets me in trouble, but we do play at times.  Chewing on the plants, but my human put cages over them so I can’t anymore & the others are behind a closed door.

Dislikes: Being made to move from a spot I’ve chosen for myself; the humans should step around me. Other cats outside. Closed doors. I don’t like being picked up very often. Plastic bags. (I had a very bad experience with one when I was young. I was checking to see what was in them when one attacked & wrapped itself around my back leg. I tried to run from it, but it kept following me. My human finally rescued me by removing it.)

What do I do all day: Whatever I feel like doing which is mostly: Sleep, Eat, Annoy the other cat, Greet my human at the door when she comes home.

My human: Laura Buck

Team Zalk: Meet Stitch!

Meet the pets! A look at the team behind Team Zalk!

Name:  Stitch. My original name was Stitches, but my human shortened it to Stitch. She sometimes will call me Stitcharoo or Stitchypoo, which I think is a little demeaning.

Breed: Felis catus. I am a Domestic Calico Shorthair.

Age: I was born sometime during the Spring of 2003. So, I am 13 years going on 14.

Sibling: Reg

How I came to live with my current human:  I started out as a stray who was adopted by a college student in Kirksville, MO. It came time for him to move into a new apartment that did not allow pets, of all the nerve. He was going to take me to the local Animal Shelter. My current human’s son knew his mother would take me, even though he hadn’t asked her. So, on Thanksgiving day 2003, I was transported to my new home and have been here ever since.

Likes: Belly rubs from my human. Sleeping in my cat beds. Eating. Treats when I can get them. A dripping faucet. Being combed & petted. Sitting next to my human on the couch. Sunning myself in the garden windows.

Dislikes: That other cat when he invades my space. Having my feet touched. Loud noises especially the vacuum cleaner. Too many humans. The cat carrier since it means I’m going to the V-E-T. Trespassers in my human’s yard, D-O-G-S.

What I do with most of my day: Ignore the other cat as much as possible. Sleep. Occasional trips to the food bowl hoping the other cat hasn’t eaten all of the food. Greet my human when she gets home and follow her around the house.

My human: Laura Buck

Team Zalk: Meet Abu!

Meet the pets! A look at the team behind Team Zalk!

Name: Abu

Species: Felis catus. Nearly feral river cat.

Age: 2

Siblings: Dexter; Shadow

Likes: Avocado. Coconut oil. Snuggling with Dexter dog. Avian theatre. Rearranging the house as the humans sleep. His binky blanket. His favorite shoe string.

Dislikes: Being touched. Shadow bunny and pretty much everyone except Dexter.

What he does all day: Torments Dexter dog. Plots his escape.

Hero: Himself

One word: Judgemental

Human: Sue Giger

 

Abu

Team Zalk: Meet Shadow!

Meet the pets! A look at the team behind Team Zalk!

Name:  Shadow

Species:  Oryctolagus cuniculus. Mini Lop-Eared Bunny.

Age: 1

Siblings: Dexter; Abu

Likes:  Pellet treats. His brothers. Apples. Head massages. Hiding.

Dislikes:  Being held. Untimely delivery of pellets.

One word:  D’awwww

Human: Sue Giger

 

Shadow
