Speaker: Michael R. Lappin, DVM, PhD, DACVIM
In this lecture, Dr. Lappin will review the current information concerning SARS-CoV-2 infection in dogs and cats. Emphasis will be placed on how this is a reverse zoonosis and there is minimal data suggesting that an infected dog or cat could infect a person and cause COVID-19. The clinical manifestations of disease will be reviewed as well as evidence suggesting that dogs and cats have minimal illness and short term shedding of the virus. How to avoid infection in your pet will also be discussed.

This talk explores the similarities and differences between osteosarcoma in dogs and humans. In exploring these similarities and differences, we ask the question, “How can we improve outcomes for both canine and human osteosarcoma patients?” We will look at an example of a canine and a human osteosarcoma patient, discuss how the disease is similar across species, and explore how the field of Comparative Oncology seeks to make advances in our understanding of osteosarcoma biology.

Speaker: Nicole Ehrhart, VMD, MS
There has been an unprecedented amount of very new and impactful discovery leading to a deep understanding of cellular mechanisms that drive aging. We know now that what we once thought was irreversible (aging), may in fact be reversed or significantly delayed using new molecules and therapeutic approaches that specifically target and destroy aging cells allowing for tissue regeneration, prolonged organ/tissue health and diminished risk of developing diseases such as cancer, diabetes, stroke, dementia and cardiac disease. However, despite huge advances in our understanding of cellular mechanisms that drive aging, and various therapeutic molecules that can reverse these changes, there has been little to no translation of these understandings toward meaningful health span improvements for human or veterinary patients. This talk will discuss the fascinating new information about aging and how companion dogs are the key bridge to helping humans and pets live healthier for longer.

Michael Lappin
DVM, PhD, DACVIM
Dr. Lappin graduated from Oklahoma State University and then completed an internship, internal medicine residency, and PhD program in Parasitology at the University of Georgia. Dr. Lappin is the Kenneth W. Smith Professor in Small Animal Clinical Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University, is the director of the “Center for Companion Animal Studies” and he helps direct the shelter medicine program.
He is the chair of the WSAVA One Health Committee. The Center is housed in the Translational Medicine Institute at CSU. His principal areas of interest are prevention of infectious diseases, the upper respiratory disease complex, infectious causes of fever, infectious causes of diarrhea, and zoonoses. His research group has published over 300 primary papers or book chapters concerning small animal infectious diseases. Awards include the Norden Distinguished Teaching Award, NAVC Small Animal Speaker of the Year, the European Society of Feline Medicine International Award for Outstanding Contribution to Feline Medicine, the Winn Feline Research Award, the ACVIM Robert W. Kirk Award for Professional Excellence, the WSAVA Scientific Achievement Award, and the AVMA Clinical Research Award.
Will Eward
MD, DVM
Dr. Will Eward took a nontraditional route on his journey to becoming an Orthopaedic Oncologist. Will fulfilled a lifelong dream of becoming a small animal veterinarian in 2000 when he graduated from Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. He was particularly captivated by his patients with cancer and decided to return to medical school, receiving an MD degree from the University of Vermont.
After completing residency at Duke University, he travelled to the University of Toronto for a fellowship in Orthopaedic Oncology. He currently is on faculty at Duke University with an adjunct appointment at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. As an Orthopaedic Oncologist, he specializes in preserving and reconstructing limbs that have been threatened by sarcomas of soft tissue or in bone. As a clinician scientist, he also runs a basic science laboratory at Duke. Given his dual roles in human and animal health, Will’s laboratory efforts at Duke are geared to identify common elements between types of cancer across different species. Will is an internationally recognized expert in the field of Comparative Oncology, and is the director of the Duke Comparative Oncology Group, Chair of the Consortium for Canine Comparative Oncology (C3O), and a member of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association’s multinational One Health Committee. When Will is not in the hospital or lab he enjoys spending time with his wife, three children and many dogs, swimming, reading, fishing, and running.

She is a board-certified veterinary surgeon (Diplomate ACVS; ACVS Founding Fellow in Surgical Oncology), a professor of surgical oncology in the Dept. of Clinical Sciences in the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and a research faculty member at CSU’s Flint Animal Cancer Center. In her research lab, the Laboratory of Comparative Musculoskeletal Oncology and Traumatology, Ehrhart conducts translational aging, limb preservation, tissue engineering, and sarcoma research, as well as bone and muscle regenerative medicine, to benefit both human and canine patients. Ehrhart holds joint faculty positions in the School of Biomedical Engineering, the Cell and Molecular Biology program, the Gates Regenerative Medicine Center at the University of Colorado, and The University of Colorado Cancer Center.
