Dr. Quinn’s talk will focus on how animals are viewed by society and how this relates to their use in biomedical research. He will discuss why animals are viewed differently in different situations and different cultures, and how popular culture influences our views on animals. Students will learn how animals are currently being used to develop treatments and cures for the diseases that affect both humans and animals.

People interested in learning more about sustainable energy are invited to attend the free Junior Cafe presentation on Saturday, November 16, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) in Syracuse’s Armory Square. Walk-ins are welcome, but we ask that people RSVP by emailing jrcafe@tacny.org by November 13, 2013.

Presenters

Dr. Robert H. Quinn, D.V.M., DACLAM, grew up in Utah and always wanted to be a dog and cat veterinarian. He attended Utah State University and veterinary school at Colorado State University. In veterinary school, he realized he wanted to do something that helps both animals and people, so he decided to become a laboratory animal veterinarian. Dr. Quinn did a three-year residency at the University of Michigan Medical School, then moved to New Orleans to work at LSU Medical Center for five years before moving to Syracuse to lead the Dept. of Laboratory Animal Resources at SUNY Upstate Medical. Dr. Quinn is also the consulting attending veterinarian at Syracuse University, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and the Veterans Administration Hospital.
