APPENDIX B BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES OF AUTHORING COMMITTEE; WORKSHOP AGENDA; AND WORKSHOP PARTICIPANTS

MURIEL T. DAVISSON, PhD, CHAIRWOMAN

Dr. Davisson is a senior scientist and director of genetic resources at The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine. She is an internationally recognized mouse geneticist and is a member of the ILAR Council.

STEPHEN W. BARTHOLD, DVM, PhD, Dipl ACVP

Dr. Barthold is professor and director of the University of California Center for Comparative Medicine, a research center featuring investigation of diseases common to humans and animals. The center is supported jointly by the schools of medicine and veterinary medicine. Dr. Barthold recently relocated to California after 23 years at Yale University School of Medicine, where he was professor of comparative medicine. His research involves pathogenesis of infectious disease in animal models, and his professional specialty is diseases of laboratory rodents and lagomorphs.

BENNETT DYKE, PhD

Dr. Dyke is a scientist at the Southwest Foundation for Biomedical Research in San Antonio, Texas. He is a population geneticist and developer of biologic databases. He recently chaired the editorial panel of ILAR Journal that was devoted to computational models in animal research.

ROGER HANLON, PhD

Dr. Hanlon is senior scientist and director of the Marine Resources Center (MRC) at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The MRC houses more than 100 aquatic species that are used in basic biological and biomedical research and teaching nationwide. Dr. Hanlon has extensive experience in mariculture and investigates the behavior and sensory biology of cephalopods and fishes.

Biomedical Models and Resources: Current Needs and Future Opportunities ROBERT J. RUSSELL, DVM, MS Dr. Russell received his DVM degree from the University of Illinois and his MS from Texas A and M University. He is a diplomate of the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine. Since 1985, he has been director of laboratory animal medicine for the worldwide operations of the Harlan Group of companies. His particular interests and experience include the development and provision of laboratory animals with known health, phenotypic, and genetic characteristics for use in biomedical and behavioral research. He collaborates extensively with investigators in the United States and Europe to help meet their specific research requirements and project goals. PHILIP A. WOOD, DVM, PhD Dr. Wood is professor and interim chairman of the Department of Comparative Medicine at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is an active investigator involved in understanding the molecular genetics of metabolism and elucidating molecular mechanisms of metabolic diseases using animal models, particularly transgenic and gene knockout mouse models. A major interest is the role of aberrant fatty acid metabolism in both rare inherited diseases and more common diseases, such as diabetes mellitus and obesity.
