The Michigan State University (MSU) College of Veterinary Medicine (MSU CVM) is conducting more research in Africa than ever before. And seldom have the potential benefits of our research been so promising.
The Summer 2010 issue of the College’s ‘Perspectives’ Magazine highlights some of this research:
Dr. John Kaneene, for instance, is steeped in several projects addressing the reduction of the transmission of tuberculosis and brucellosis in Uganda, and the impact of climate change on livestock and wildlife disease in Tanzania.
Dr. Charles Mackenzie, meanwhile, has been awarded a significant grant to reformulate a drug that can stop the killer tropical diseases of river blindness in Sudan and elephantiasis in Tanzania.
Dr. Dalen Agnew is researching the causes of death of livestock in Ghana, which impacts local economies greatly.
