Risco named large animal clinical sciences department chair http://www.vetmed.ufl.edu/2012/09/17/risco-named-large-animal-clinical-sciences-department-chair/ http://www.vetmed.ufl.edu/2012/09/17/risco-named-large-animal-clinical-sciences-department-chair/#comments Mon, 17 Sep 2012 18:07:36 +0000 http://vetmed.sites.medinfo.ufl.edu/?p=5150 Dr. Carlos RiscoDr. Carlos Risco, a professor and food animal medicine and reproduction specialist at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently appointed chair of the college’s department of large animal clinical sciences, effective Sept. 1.

Risco, a board-certified theriogenologist whose primary interest is dairy medicine, succeeds Dr. David Freeman in the position. A professor of large animal surgery who has served as interim department chair since 2009, Freeman has returned to his position on the college faculty.

As chair, Risco will be responsible for faculty recruitment, mentoring and promotion, as well as budget management and instructional activities. He also will provide leadership in the areas of research, veterinary and graduate student education, clinical resident and intern training, and outreach. Risco will work closely with the chief of staff of the UF Veterinary Hospitals to ensure high-quality clinical service, and will liaise with the scientific communities of both the UF Academic Health Center and the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

A member of the veterinary college’s first graduating class of 1980, Risco performed an internship at Chino Valley Veterinary Associates, a large dairy practice in Ontario, Calif., immediately following his graduation. He became a partner in that practice after completing his internship in 1981. Risco joined the UF veterinary faculty in 1990 as an assistant professor and was promoted to full professor in 2002.

During his tenure at UF, Risco has received many awards and honors for his teaching and research. In addition to several awards given by UF veterinary students, Risco also received the UF Blue Key Distinguished Faculty Award for teaching research and the Carl Norden-Pfizer Distinguished Teaching Award from the college. He was a Fulbright Visiting Scholar in Argentina in 2004 and was honored by the college’s Alumni Council with its annual Alumni Achievement Award in 2005.

He is an internationally recognized lecturer on dairy cattle production medicine.

“Dr. Risco brings a wealth of experience in large animal and a new vision to the leadership of the department,” said the college’s dean, Glen Hoffsis.

Research Interests

For approximately the last 10 years, Dr. Brown’s research has focused on osteoarthritis, primarily osteoarthritis in horses. However, it has become apparent that the horse is also a good translational model for osteoarthritis in other species, particularly humans. In collaboration with Dr. Troy Trumble, Dr. Brown has concentrated on developing, validating, and using biomarkers (biochemical markers) of joint metabolism to help diagnose, monitor progression, and treatment effects related to joint disease and injury. Dr. Brown also has an interest in identifying new targets for the development of osteoarthritic drugs. He has focused on the inter-relationships of articular metabolic by-products of synthesis and degradation of bone and cartilage in the synovial fluid, serum, and urine. By using biomarker concentrations and ratios in these fluids to predict the presence or absence of joint injury, we have found that some of these tests have an accuracy greater than 90%. Although many of the biomarkers used are commercially available enzyme-linked immunoassays, Dr. Brown has also developed a number of original assays in his laboratory that may be useful in the diagnosis of osteoarthritis and the monitoring of treatment effects. His research is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Research Interests

My research has primarily been focused on three main areas: the equine gastric ulcer syndrome, pain management in the horse, and critical care of equine neonates. My laboratory has evaluated the effectiveness of various drugs for the treatment of gastric ulcers in foals and adult horses and for pain management in adult horses. We have also evaluated how different factors (age, housing, illness) can affect the physiologic environment of the stomach in foals and adult horses. The overall goal of this work is to gain a better understanding of the equine gastric ulcer syndrome and to improve our ability to manage various types of pain in horses.
