Posted April 1, 2015
Drs. Xinbin Chen, David Dorman, and Michael Oglesbee were recognized in February as three of 401 new fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science for 2014.
Dr. Chen earned his veterinary degree in 1982 from Anhui Agricultural University in China and is a professor at the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and School of Medicine. His research focuses on the p53 gene and related proteins known to play an important role in suppressing cancer.
Dr. Dorman (Colorado State ’86) is a professor of toxicology at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He was recognized for distinguished contributions to the field of toxicology, particularly research investigating the nasal toxicity and neurotoxicity of environmental chemicals.
Dr. Oglesbee (Ohio State ’84) is chair of the Department of Veterinary Biosciences at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine. His recognition as a fellow is based on his contributions to the understanding of interactions between heat shock proteins and viruses related to infection and virulence as well as the impact of these interactions on innate and adaptive antiviral immunity.
