Date:8/31/2007

MANHATTAN, Kan., Aug. 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Juergen Richt, lead scientist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Animal Disease Center and an adjunct professor at Iowa State University, will be joining Kansas State University as a Regents Distinguished Professor.

Richt's appointment begins in April 2008.

The Regents professorship, which is in the College of Veterinary Medicine, is the most prestigious of all academic appointments in the Kansas Regents' system of universities and colleges. The appointment comes with generous funding support, as well as the chance to direct the appointment of at least two additional new supporting faculty positions.

Richt is a veterinary microbiologist who has worked with multiple agents of zoonotic potential. Zoonotic diseases can be transmitted from animals to humans. Richt has published extensively on topics including the microbiology of bovine spongiform encephalopathy, chronic wasting disease, animal flu, borna virus and other emerging zoonotic diseases. He's been widely published in more than 60 journals, including Nature Biotechnology, Journal of Experimental Medicine, Journal of Virology and Science.

Richt's appointment further strengthens the nexus of expertise at K-State in the animal health and food safety and security arenas.

"Dr. Juergen Richt will be a brilliant addition not only to our faculty in the College of Veterinary Medicine, but for the entire university and the state of Kansas," said Jon Wefald, K-State president.

"Dr. Richt's experience and reputation will contribute tremendously to our university-wide commitment to animal health and food safety and security," said Ralph Richardson, dean of K-State's College of Veterinary Medicine. "His research will greatly advance K-State as a center of research excellence in infectious diseases of livestock.

"In many ways, he will position us to play an important role in protecting the public from emerging
