Daniel Linhares is one of three Iowa State University College of Veterinarian Medicine faculty to be awarded a Dean's Fellowship. The fellowships, which are provided through funds from the Juelsgaard Dean’s endowment fund, support programmatic activities of faculty who are poised to become leaders in their fields.
An assistant professor of veterinary diagnostic and production animal medicine, Linhares has developed field-based strategies to prevent, significantly control and/or eliminate swine infectious diseases. His work is leading to the development of population-based diagnostic tools that help veterinarians and producers identify the health status of their production animal enterprises quickly and efficiently.
Other ISU CVM Dean’s Fellowships are:
- Josh Beck, assistant professor in biomedical sciences. Beck studies how malaria parasites take over human red blood cells. This could lead to better treatments for malaria, a disease that kills nearly half a million people every year.
- Thimmasettappa Thippeswamy, professor of biomedical sciences. Thippeswamy’s research is focused on identifying neurobiological changes that occur following nerve injury and in epilepsy. An award-winning instructor, Thippeswamy has developed teaching techniques that focus students understanding of anatomy based on clinically relevant functions verses more traditional methods of memorizing of structures.
