Summer 2017 Newsletter
A Note from the President
It’s been a busy summer here at TransPharm and we are on track for another record year. Our team has been hard at work and we’re excited to share an inside look at what we do. The video below gives a great overview of our role in preclinical infectious disease research. It highlights our niche focus – animal models of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi – which has cultivated an expertise that sets us apart from other contract research organizations. As specialists, we can serve as professional consultants to help you design a study that meets both your needs and your budget. You’ll also get a glimpse of our state-of-the-art laboratory and animal care facilities, as well as hear about how we manage such quick turn-around times for our clients. We have a passion for knowledge and scientific discovery and feel honored to play even a small part in the drug development process. It is our goal that our work will contribute to new and potentially life-saving therapies. We hope you enjoy the video and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel to see future content.
President & CEO
In the Lab
We are searching for TransPharm’s Next Top Model! Our team has been focused on validating new murine models of infectious disease, including Haemophilus influenzae pneumonia, Staphylococcus epidermidis peritonitis, Streptococcus pyogenes soft tissue infection, and Acinetobacter baumannii deep wound infection. Upcoming validations will follow-up on the 2017 summer internship program projects as well as validating new comparators against H. influenzae, P. acnes, and VRE. Contact us today to request a validation or no-obligation quote.
Speaking of our internship program, it was featured in a recent edition of the Brooklyn Exponent. All four of our 2017 interns – Paige, Brandon, Jen, and Trevor – did a fantastic job in the lab. We are looking forward to meeting next year’s applicants!
Santiago R. Lopez, Ph.D.
Chief Scientific Officer
Many of our clients have published their research and acknowledged TransPharm’s role in their work. Check out a few of the manuscripts and poster presentations based on studies we’ve completed, including a P. acnes skin infection, a pulmonary model of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a C. difficile gastrointestinal infection, as well as models of candidiasis, aspergillosis, and cecal ligation and puncture sepsis.
2017 Scholarship Recipients
Each year, TransPharm offers $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors from local high schools in the Irish Hills. The 2017 scholarships were awarded to three deserving young women pursuing careers in STEM. Congratulations to Hailey Dickens, Mackenzi Collins, and Riley Bollheimer!
