Mapping the Pathway to Gut Health in HIV and SIV Infections

November 20, 2019
Katti (Horng) Crakes, doctoral student in the schools of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine at UC Davis, served as first author on a UC Davis research study that found that the damaged gut lining (known as leaky gut) in monkeys infected with chronic simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV), an HIV-like virus, was rapidly repaired within five hours of receiving Lactobacillus plantarum bacteria. The outcome lends hope that leaky gut, a common condition among HIV patients, could be effectively treated in the future.

Building a Foundation in Veterinary Business

January 29, 2019
Most veterinarians come to their careers because they love animals—but they may not have the skill set to build a solid business if they pursue a private practice. That’s where UC Davis can help through a new business certificate program designed by experts from its School of Veterinary Medicine and Graduate School of Management (GSM).
