Top Faculty Achiever Awards

Professors from biomedical sciences and veterinary pathobiology will represent the College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) at the 2017 University of Missouri Top Faculty Achievers Reception. The April event, hosted by Interim Chancellor Hank Foley and organized by the Office University Events, recognizes faculty who have received prestigious awards and grants within the past year.

These honorees from the CVM include the following:

  • David D. Kline, PhD, will be recognized for receiving a newly established grant from the National Institutes of Health. Kline is an associate professor of biomedical sciences and a researcher at the Dalton Cardiovascular Research Center.
  • Cheryl S. Rosenfeld, DVM, PhD, will be honored for receiving a newly established grant from the National Institutes of Health. Rosenfeld is an associate professor of biomedical sciences, teaching veterinary microanatomy and veterinary pharmacology, a Christopher S. Bond Life Sciences Center investigator, and a research faculty member for the Thompson Center for Autism and Neurobehavioral Disorders.
  • Brenda T. Beerntsen, PhD, MS, will be honored for receiving a grant award from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Beerntsen is a professor in the veterinary pathobiology department, course director of veterinary parasitology, and a guest lecturer in research ethics.
  • Kathy L. Sharpe-Timms, PhD, HCLD, ELD, will be recognized for her election to the Board of Trustees for the World Endometriosis Society. Sharpe-Timms holds a joint appointment as a professor in the comparative medicine program and the area pathobiology program in the CVM’s pathobiology department. She also serves as a professor at the School of Medicine, director of the reproductive and perinatal research division, and director of MU’s assisted reproduction laboratories.

The CVM will send a total of nine faculty members to the reception.

The event, originated in 2013, is not itself an award, but brings together faculty who have garnered awards recognized by the American Association of Universities (AAU), the Center for Measuring University Performance, and other distinguished honors. MU deans and department chairs also submit faculty for consideration.
