Iowa State University’s Clarence Hartley Covault Distinguished Professor of Veterinary Microbiology and Preventive Medicine James Roth recently became the first member of the university’s College of Veterinary Medicine to be Inducted into the National Academy of Medicine.
“I am especially proud of receiving this
recognition after having received all of my education and spending my entire
career in Iowa,” Roth said. “I benefitted from being part of an excellent
land-grant institution, a college of veterinary medicine with a strong
tradition of excellence in infectious diseases of food animals and the
opportunity to collaborate with the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Centers
for Animal Health in Ames … I have been fortunate to have an amazing team of professionals
working with me in the center.”
Roth specializes in the immunology of
infectious diseases of livestock and management of foreign animal disease
outbreaks. He is the director of the Center for Food Security and Public
Health, as well as the executive director of the Institute for International
Cooperation in Animal Biologics.
He was inducted into the National Academy
of Medicine alongside fellow Iowa State faculty member Alicia Carriquiry.
“To have two Iowa State faculty elected to
the National Academy of Medicine is an outstanding achievement. It is a
well-deserved recognition of Dr. Carriquiry’s and Dr. Roth’s commitment to
service and advancing research in their fields,” Iowa State University
President Steven Leath said.
