Until joining 德州 A&M in January 2015, Chiu was an environmental health scientist in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of 研究 and Development, National Center for Environmental Assessment. Chiu earned his Ph.D. in Physics from Princeton University and then worked at the U.S. Governmental 问责 Office (GAO), where he conducted investigations for Congress on various risk assessment-related topics, prior to joining the EPA. His research specialties include quantitative health risk assessment, dose-response assessment, statistical modeling of environmental and biological systems, and pharmacokinetics. He is particularly interested in integrating data across multiple disciplines to provide quantitative estimates of risk and/or benefit.
博士。乔kornegay, DVM class of ’73, completed residency and graduate training at the University of Georgia. Kornegay then spent 11 years at North Carolina State University in companion animal and special species medicine before going to the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where he served as clinical department chair/hospital director and later as dean. Kornegay, who was named a 德州 A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences Outstanding 校友 in 2003, studies a canine model of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) relates to the broader concept of “One Health,” an initiative that connects veterinary, human, and environmental health to benefit all life forms.
Muneoka’s research on regeneration focuses on the cellular and molecular factors that can reprogram stem cells to be more embryonic. Doing so may maximize the body’s natural potential to regenerate. Building on previous research in salamanders and on the regenerative responses of mice digits, Muneoka’s lab developed a mammalian model for endogenous regeneration. Muneoka’s inquisitive drive continues to extend the impact of his research at 德州 A&M, where he promotes graduate and undergraduate education in multiple academic departments.
Rusyn received his MD from Ukrainian State Medical University in Kiev and his Ph.D. in toxicology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was professor of Environmental Sciences and Engineering until coming to 德州 A&M. Rusyn’s areas of research include toxicology and environmental health sciences, especially developing highly mechanistic approaches to study the potential effects of environmental pollutants and other anthropogenic stressors on human health. He also focuses on the mechanisms of action of environmental toxicants, the genetic determinants of the susceptibility to toxicant-induced injury, and computational toxicology. Rusyn is recognized as a national and international authority and leader on complex problems in environmental health and human health assessments.
Threadgill, a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and a leader in genomics, is equipped with a notable history of developing scholarly teams in highly successful interdisciplinary programs. Threadgill works to position 德州 A&M as a global leader in genomics by aligning teams from diverse expertise and disciplines currently located at the university and establishing rich collaborations both nationally and internationally.
作为一个 德州 A&M University Institute for Advanced Study (TIAS) faculty fellow, Andersson has been collaborating with researchers in the 德州 A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) since November 2013. His research involves comparing the genomes of many species of domestic animals to discover the molecular mechanisms and underlying traits that are important to human and veterinary medicine.
