Corrie Brown appointed to serve on advisory committee

Corrie Brown, professor and coordinator of international activities in the College of Veterinary Medicine, was appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services to serve on the secretary’s advisory committee on xenotransplantation-the transplanting of animal organs into humans. The appointment runs through September 2006.

The committee meets three times a year to make recommendations on the scientific, medical, social, ethical and public health concerns raised by xenotransplantation. Of particular concern is the potential for transmitting emerging diseases in the transplantation process.
