Oklahoma State University’s Véronique A. Lacombe, DVM, has been elected as a full member of the Board of the International Society for Heart and Vascular Metabolism. Her three-year term begins in June with the society’s 17th annual international meeting. The society is at the vanguard of biomedical research in metabolic homeostasis, an expanding field across many areas, including the cardiovascular arena.
Lacombe was one of five nominees. Only internationally recognized scientists in this research field are considered for this prestigious position.
“Dr. Lacombe leads our Comparative Metabolism Laboratory,” said Dr. Martin Furr, head of the Department of Physiological Sciences in the Center for Veterinary Health Sciences. “She is very deserving of this honor in recognition of her work investigating the regulation of glucose transport in insulin-sensitive tissues, as well as in the lung and lamellar tissue.”
Lacombe is an associate professor in the Department of Physiological Sciences and an adjunct associate professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. For more information on her research, visit the Comparative Metabolism Laboratory.
