Veterinarian Stephen W. Barthold, director of the UC Davis Center for Comparative Medicine and UC Davis Mouse Biology Program, will give the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine's annual Oscar W. Schalm Lecture on Monday, September 17, 2001. The public is cordially invited to attend this free event.
The lecture, "Mouse Genomics: Phenotypes, No Phenotypes and Faux Phenotypes," will take place from noon to 1:00 pm in 170 Schalm Hall, located at the Medical Sciences Complex on the Davis campus. Barthold will discuss how "the veterinary profession can embrace an unprecedented opportunity" to work with the laboratory mouse, which has become the preeminent animal model for mammalian genomics and biomedical research.
Barthold, who earned both his B.S. and D.V.M. degrees from UC Davis, joined the faculty in 1997, assuming a joint appointment as professor in the Schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. A researcher who also holds M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Wisconsin and has more than 250 papers and publications to his credit, he has spent most of his academic career in the Section of Comparative Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven. Among his many accomplishments, Barthold has been recognized for his groundbreaking research on Lyme disease.
UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine conducts a statewide mission of teaching, research and service to benefit animal, human and environmental health. The Oscar W. Schalm Lectureship, established in 1988, honors the memory of Oscar W. Schalm, a founding faculty member.
