Trudy BennetWelcome Ms. Trudy Bennet B.A., M.S., new Assistant Department Head and Executive Director, Department of Veterinary Physiology & Pharmacology & Michael E. DeBakey Institute for Comparative Cardiovascular Science and Biomedical Devices to our wonderful department and the CVM. Trudy has already had a successful career at Texas A&M, serving in the VPRs office as well as with the Chancellor, but was eager for new challenges. Fortunately, we have been able to entice her to join VTPP. Trudy will continue VTPP efforts to lead the CVM in research and teaching as well as work with faculty, students and staff to increase public outreach and more fully engage VTPP with our EAB. Please join me in welcoming Trudy to VTPP and the CVM.

RSL Interior RSL ExteriorConstruction at RSL continues and the building is in the final phases, with only some finishing touches remaining.

In addition, to ensure the grand opening is even more impressive, we have had a team of dedicated student workers painting the fences and helping with ground work. Pipe fences around the existing animal pens are continuing to be painted and looking good as new again.

In even more great news, Lisa applied to the Aggie Replant Organization and the RSC was chosen as a planting site. Aggie Replant students came out October 20th and planted 12 new trees around the existing and new buildings. What an amazing organization to donate trees and time to planting them in and around campus and the community! We were grateful to be chosen. The accompanying images (below) (Courtesy of Lisa Roberts-Helton) show the Aggie Replant team and the fruits of their incredible labors. Please stay tuned for the details of the new labs official VTPP opening!
