The Veterinary Bioscience Institute (VBI) http://www.vetbiotech.com is thrilled to announce that Jennifer C. Smith DVM, DACLAM has joined VBI full-time as Vice President of Research and Development.

As part of expansion plans for the Veterinary Bioscience Institute, hiring prominent, well-respected and highly-educated individuals to join the team is a foundation of this growth. More individuals contributing their thoughts and ideas to VBI's highly collaborative environment will ensure continued success of the company.

Dr. Smith has over 15 years of industry experience. Since 2006 she served at Taconic Inc as the Associate Director of Veterinary Services. Previous to that she served at Amgen Inc as a clinical veterinarian, culminating as the Associate Directory of Laboratory Animal Resources.

“We are growing rapidly, and we are fanatical about hiring only the best, most respected individuals to be part of the team at VBI,” states Dr. Elizabeth Johnson, CEO of the Veterinary Bioscience Institute. “Dr. Smith has a great reputation as a clinician, researcher and instructor. Her commitment to animal welfare and laboratory animal science is unwavering, and she continues to uphold the highest standards in promoting excellence across the entire profession.”

Dr. Smith will primarily be responsible for developing a world-class GLP rodent facility at the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter, and will also contribute heavily to the educational materials and workshops that VBI offers to their clients.

“VBI has quickly become an important company within the laboratory animal industry,” Dr. Smith says, “and it’s an honor to have the opportunity to build on its success”.

Dr. Szczepan Baran, President of the Veterinary Bioscience Institute thinks that this addition to the team was one that was a long time in the making, but couldn’t have come at a better time. “Now that Dr. Smith has joined us, VBI will be able to expand its course offerings and offer a state-of-the-art facility to perform studies that meet and exceed GLP requirements. We are truly fortunate to have her on the team, and know that this addition takes VBI to the next level.”

In addition to the GLP facility and course work, Dr. Smith will be preparing, presenting and participating in workshops presented by VBI at the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. These workshops begin in May, and cover a variety of topics, from rodent microsurgery to complex anesthesia and analgesia cases. http://vetbiotech.com/workshops.php
