Dr. Jeff Studer

Dr. Jeff Studer serves as director of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Oklahoma State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

“I first heard about INTERACT in September 2019 when Drs. Jerry Malayer and Carlos Risco introduced it,” Studer said. “I was very excited because the impact of this type of program is going to be immense.

“INTERACT, in my opinion, is going to have benefits for many sectors but especially at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. It’s going to lead to research that we can translate from bench side research to application for our patients in the hospital. I think the impact for our patients, our clients, our referring veterinarians and our students will be great.

“For example, the Veterinary Teaching Hospital is the only hospital in the country offering high intensity focused ultrasound, thanks to the great work by Drs. Ashish Ranjan and Danielle Dugat. It is very exciting to be able to offer this emerging type of treatment for our patients.

“INTERACT will be a major component of the hospital moving forward. Being able to have clinical research housed in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital of the caliber that INTERACT will produce is going to be something that we’ve never seen before.”

The Institute for Translational and Emerging Research in Advanced Comparative Therapy (INTERACT) aims to fulfill One Health research by conducting parallel investigations in both humans and animals. INTERACT promotes interdisciplinary research within the veterinary college, across the OSU campus and throughout the state and nation by developing and translating discoveries into therapies for patients. INTERACT has faculty participants from almost all OSU colleges, industry experts, foundation partners, and personnel from other academic institutions around the country.
