Sue VandeWoude, CVMBS Director of Research

In the CSU College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, we’re proud of our world-renowned expertise in life sciences. This foundation uniquely positions our college to tackle local and global challenges, to provide critical new knowledge through basic research, and to offer important solutions. Particularly valuable are two approaches that help define our research: translational medicine, which translates insights gained from basic science and novel clinical therapies of animals with naturally occurring disease into improvements in human medicine; and the One Health framework, which advances global public health and well-being by investigating pressing questions at the interface of human, animal, and environmental health.

Dr. Susan VandeWoude, DVM, Associate Dean for Research

  • annual research day
    We asked investigators and students across our college about their big questions. Here are their answers.
  • rice bran, elizabeth ryan
    Toxicologist Elizabeth Ryan collaborates with oncologist Regina Brown on human trials with colorectal cancer survivors. They presented their research on the health benefits of rice bran and navy beans at the annual meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research in Washington, D.C.
  • brain disease, edward hoover, deer
    Our prion experts are studying whether a test for early-stage chronic wasting disease in deer might also be used to identify the onset of brain disorders in people – possible because of the shared characteristic of protein misfolding.​​
  • Research Day 2017
    The work of our next generation of talented scientists was on display at 2017 CVMBS Research Day, when 128 rising investigators delivered findings in talks and poster presentations.​
  • microbiome mind-meld
    CSU is committed to building on a strong foundation in microbial sciences. Join us for the next Microbiome Network meeting on May 10 from 4-6, and connect with others who are applying microbiomes to their field of study.
  • gender equity
    A Women in Science Workshop at CSU on April 13 will explore gender-based challenges in science, career mentoring, and science communication. The workshop is free and open to the public and campus community.
