One Health Lecture - April 11, 2018

In honor of Dr. Roger Mahr
Dr. Lawrence B. Schook
5:30 pm
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.
