Boshell Diabetes Research Day Friday, March 1, 2013

Auburn University holds the sixth annual Boshell Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases Research Day on Friday, March 1, at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center, bringing together experts from around the U.S. to present current topics related to diabetes and the role of obesity in its development. 

The meeting features research presentations throughout the day and evening. 

  • Morris White, Harvard Medical School professor of pediatrics and an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, will talk about hepatic insulin resistance and metabolic disease in the keynote presentation. White investigates the molecular basis of insulin signal transduction to understand the pathophysiology of diabetes and other disorders, including obesity, and cardiovascular and retinal diseases. 
  • Anthony Ferrante, Dorothy and Daniel Silberberg Associate Professor of Medicine at Columbia University, will speak on the role of macrophages (cells) in obesity and weight loss. 
  • Auburn University football great and two-time Super Bowl champion Kendall Simmons is the banquet speaker.  After leaving Auburn in 2002, Simmons was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, or in his case, type 1.5 or LADA – latent autoimmune diabetes in adulthood. Today Simmons travels the country promoting diabetes awareness, research, and advocacy. 

Registration for Research Day is $75 for Boshell program members and $125 for nonmembers.  Students and postdoctoral fellows may attend at no cost.   

The evening banquet with Kendall Simmons is open to the public, but seating is limited.  Tickets are $35 per person.  For information, a meeting schedule, and to purchase tickets online, visit

The Boshell Diabetes and Metabolic Diseases Research Program at Auburn University is dedicated to improving the lives of people with diabetes through world-class basic science investigation into the etiology and treatment of diabetes and other metabolic diseases. Robert L. Judd, associate professor of pharmacology at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine, serves as program chair. 

At Auburn, funds generated by the Boshell endowment enhance the university's research efforts to improve the lives of people as well as pets, which are also susceptible to diabetes, through investigation into the causes and treatment of diabetes and other metabolic diseases.


Open House Saturday, April 20, 2013

Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine will hold its annual Open House on Saturday, April 20, opening its facilities to the public to showcase the variety of professional opportunities available and allow people to learn more about animal care and health.

The free student-organized event, from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., features a variety of educational and fun activities for all ages on the college’s campus, located at 1130 Wire Road.

“Open House is a wonderful opportunity for those who love animals to come and get an inside view of the College of Veterinary Medicine,” said Kris Street, an outreach programs administrator with the College of Veterinary Medicine.

“At Open House, you can come and see both the teaching and clinical side of the College of Veterinary Medicine,” said Ray Wilhite, laboratory coordinator for the college’s Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology. “This behind-the-scenes look is something usually not available.”

High school and college students will have the opportunity to talk with counselors about veterinary medicine throughout the day. A special session at 10:30 a.m. in the Overton Educational Wing will cover admission requirements and career opportunities.

Several featured programs will be held on the CVM campus. An educational program featuring birds of prey by the college’s Southeastern Raptor Center will begin at 10 a.m. in the lameness arena by the Large Animal Teaching Hospital; followed by a canine parade of breeds at 11 a.m. in front of Greene Hall. At 1 p.m., a demonstration will be held showcasing dogs trained to detect explosives, also on the front lawn of Greene Hall.

Other family activities will run throughout the day, including the popular Teddy Bear Surgery, where children can help veterinary students practice their surgical skills; a petting zoo and a showcase of exotic animals; bovine and equine display of breeds; pocket pets; face painting; and a paleontology dig.

An informational scavenger hunt will help children learn as they explore exhibits around the college and educational demonstrations will include ultrasound, radiographs, pathology and the anatomy lab.

Attendees are requested to leave pets at home.
