Welcome to the Fall 2004 edition of Insight. In this edition, we focus on some of the many innovative research programs at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences. You’ll read about new surgical techniques that enhance the health outcomes for horses and new nonsurgical techniques that help infants born with a devastating heart defect. We look at three projects focused on cancer research, including one funded by NASA to examine the long-term risks of radiation exposure to astronauts on extended space fl ights. You’ll learn how researchers at CSU are making a difference in the world of veterinary medicine and pushing forward the boundaries in biomedical sciences.
We also honor several faculty members who recently have received prestigious awards for their work in teaching and research. These honors and awards reflect the overall excellence of the faculty at the College, and we congratulate the recipients – Drs. Stephen Withrow, Ian Orme, and Patrick Brennan – on their achievements. Research is a strong component of our College mission. It helps us advance animal care, cure animal and human diseases, and protect public health. We hope you enjoy the articles in this special research edition of Insight and learn more about research at Colorado State University.
