Kleberg Fellowship Awarded

Dr. Alain Bouvet has been selected as the fourth Kleberg Fellow in the Section of Medical Genetics at the School. The fellowships, established in 1989 by the Robert J. Kleberg, Jr. and Helen C. Kleberg Foundation, support a postdoctoral research training program in medical genetics for veterinarians.

The objective of the program is to attract and train talented veterinary scientists in genetics research, emphasizing those fields which provide the greatest potential to advance the understanding, treatment, and prevention of diseases in which genes play a major role. Because of their broad education in the biological medical sciences and their direct involvement in the health and productivity of animals, veterinarians are ideally suited to play a major role in research into the basic mechanisms involved in genetic disease, gene therapy, identification and engineering of genes that will be important in producing disease resistance.

Dr. Bouvet's work as a Kleberg Fellow will center around the molecular analysis of genetic diseases that are homologs of human genetic disease. Dr. Bouvet comes to Penn from the Department of Molecular and Cellular Physiology, Cambridge Research Station, Cambridge, England, where his research focused on the detection and localization of genes in swine, using flow cytometry and DNA hybridization techniques. Dr. Bouvet received his veterinary degree trom the University of Montreal and his Ph.D. degree in biomedical sciences from the University of Guelph, Canada.

The Kleberg Fellowship Program, still the only of its kind in any veterinary school in the world, will have a signifiant effect on the long-term course of the profession of veterinary medicine and on the knowledge concerning the mechanisms and treatment of genetic diseases in animals and human beings. Additional fellowships will be offered to veterinarians with outstanding academic records and demonstrated talent in areas basic to the field of genetics.

Individuals interested in this program should contact Dr. Donald F. Patterson, Chief, Section of MedicalGenetics, School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, 03800 Spruce Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104.
