Renowned Veterinary Oncologist
to Speak at CVM
The Niemeyer Visiting Lecturer Fund is planning to bring Dr. Cheryl London to the MU College of Veterinary Medicine in December. London, DVM, PhD, Diplomate ACVIM, will present “Novel Drug Discovery: Integrating Clinical Practice with the Pharmaceutical Industry,” at 8 a.m., Friday, Dec. 10, 2010. The lecture will be held in the Adams Conference Center of the Veterinary Medicine Building.
London is an associate professor of medical oncology at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine where she is also the Thekla R. and Donald B. Shackelford Professor in Canine Medicine, an honor she has held since 2005. Her research interests center primarily around the use of targeted therapeutics in veterinary oncology.
She is a 1990 graduate of Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine. She worked in private practice for two years in Maine before completing a residency in medical oncology at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She then entered a PhD program in immunology at Harvard University. After graduating in 1999, she was named an assistant professor of medical oncology at the University of California Davis where she remained until 2005 before accepting her current position at The Ohio State.
Among her accomplishments, London received the Pfizer Animal Health Award for Research Excellence in 2010, the Vintner Grant in Honor of Marc Beringer in 2003, the John Stauffer Graduate Fellowship from 1995 to 1997, the Robert S. Brodey Award for outstanding basic science research in 1994, and the Miles Small Animal Resident of the Year Award in 1994.
The College is offering one continuing education credit recognized by the Missouri Veterinary Medical Board for attendance at this seminar. Practicing veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians are welcome to attend and will be provided with a certificate of continuing education for their records.
To defray the cost of CE certification, it is suggested that attendees make a donation of $25 to be paid by check to the University of Missouri – Silent Partners Fund of the VMTH. This fund helps defray the cost of care for animals whose owners have demonstrated financial difficulty but whose pet could be significantly helped with medical care.
This presentation is possible through the Kenneth and Margaret Niemeyer Visiting Lecturer Fund. The Niemeyers are long-time friends of the college and instrumental in its growth to an institution that stands among the best in the nation.
