The news item is about: Dr. Colin Parrish has become a world-renowned expert in animal virology since he first came to Cornell University in 1978, and now he’ll be sharing his knowledge and ideas beyond Cornell later this year thanks to a prestigious scholarship. As a graduate student at the Baker Institute for Animal Health in the early 1980s, Parrish helped develop the first vaccines for canine parvovirus and as a faculty member he has since continued with a long history of inquiry and discovery. Today Parrish is the Institute director and John M. Olin Professor of Virology, and he investigates the viruses behind global pandemics and the ways in which diseases spread between different animals and to humans. He has been selected for an award from the Fulbright Scholar Program, giving him the opportunity to share his expertise abroad as a Visiting Professor at the University of Glasgow.
