With board-certified specialists and a nationally recognized faculty, Auburn provides a comprehensive range of veterinary services for your animal at the level only rivaled at a university medical center.
Cutting-edge animal health care, clinical trials to develop new, safe, and effective treatments, and the most advanced training availble to veterinarians, benefit not only the residents of Alabama, but our nation and our world.
Strong relationships with referring veterinarians foster the very best care for both patients and clients. Challenging cases that require comprehensive diagnostics, imaging or therapies are sent to the hospital by your family verinarian. This relationship ensures that animals receive the benefit of the latest clinical trials, research and treatment protocols available.
The College of Veterinary Medicine prides itself in meeting the needs of not only its students, but one of its greatest assets- its employees. Resources available here are aimed at providing a comprehensive guide to meeting employee needs, and include information such as the Student/Faculty Directory, Media Resources, Campus Safety Procedures, IIT, etc.
From the early work of Dr. Charles Allen Cary more than a century ago, to the development of some of the world's most advanced veterinary programs, Auburn has influenced the character and scope of veterinary medicine.
The country's seventh oldest veterinary school and the oldest in the South, Auburn today boasts one of the nation's preeminent institutions for research, teaching, diagnosis, and treatment in many specialties of small and large animal medicine.
All activities associated with students in the professional veterinary degree program are coordinated through the College of Veterinary Medicine Office of Academic Affairs. These activities include, but are not limited to:
Auburn University holds the sixth annual Boshell Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases Research Day on Friday, March 1, at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center, bringing together experts from around the U.S. to present current topics related to diabetes and the role of obesity in its development.
The meeting features research presentations throughout the day and evening.
Morris White, Harvard Medical School professor of pediatrics and an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, will talk about hepatic insulin resistance and metabolic disease in the keynote presentation. White investigates the molecular basis of insulin signal transduction to understand the pathophysiology of diabetes and other disorders, including obesity, and cardiovascular and retinal diseases.
Anthony Ferrante, Dorothy and Daniel Silberberg Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University, will speak on the role of macrophages (cells) in obesity and weight loss.
Auburn University football great and two-time Super Bowl champion Kendall Simmons is the banquet speaker. After leaving Auburn in 2002, Simmons was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, or in his case, type 1.5 or LADA – latent autoimmune diabetes in adulthood. Today Simmons travels the country promoting diabetes awareness, research, and advocacy.
Registration for Research Day is $75 for Boshell program members and $125 for nonmembers. Students and postdoctoral fellows may attend at no cost.
The evening banquet with Kendall Simmons is open to the public, but seating is limited. Tickets are $35 per person. For information, a meeting schedule, and to purchase tickets online, visitauburndiabetes.com.
The Boshell Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases Research Program at Auburn University is dedicated to improving the lives of people with diabetes through world-class basic science investigation into the etiology and treatment of diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Robert L. Judd, associate professor of pharmacology at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, serves as program chair.
At Auburn, funds generated by the Boshell endowment enhance the university's research efforts to improve the lives of people as well as pets, which are also susceptible to diabetes, through investigation into the causes and treatment of diabetes and other metabolic diseases.
