CVM Resident Wins
Research Award

Lindsay Donnelly, DVM, a second-year veterinary oncology resident at the MU College of Veterinary Medicine, received the Robert S. Brodey Memorial Award on Oct. 19 at the Veterinary Cancer Society annual conference in Minneapolis. The award is given annually for outstanding clinical research by a resident.

Donnelly’s abstract presentation was "Preclinical evaluation of combination 177Lu-BBr2 antagonist targeted radiotherapy and chemotherapy for the treatment of castration resistant prostate cancer." Current treatments for this disease result in only a few additional months of survival time. In Donnelly’s study, 177Lu-RM2 resulted in significantly superior tumor control and survival time compared to all other treatment groups in a mouse model. In the future, Donnelly hopes to determine whether similar treatment might be effective in canine prostate cancer.

The co-authors were Tammy Rold, Kelsey Richmond, Ashley Szczodroski, Gary Sieckman, Shadi Haddadin and Timothy Hoffman.

Donnelly completed her undergraduate and veterinary studies at MU and an internship in radiation oncology at the University of Pennsylvania.
