AFS scientist featured in 'Every day, I'm a Red Raider' Texas Monthly ad
John McGlone, a professor and institutional official with Texas Tech's Department of Animal and Food Sciences, was featured in the February 2016 issue of Texas Monthly as part of the university's ongoing national marketing campaign titled, "Every day, I'm a Red Raider." He was awarded the Federation of Animal Science Societies Service Award last summer at the annual meeting of the American Society of Animal Science.
McGlone has been active in FASS activities for years, including serving as a member or chairman of the organization's animal care committee since the group was formed. He networked animal care activities for FASS, including cross-serving on boards and committees with the American Veterinary Medical Association, Professional Animal Auditor Certification Organization, and the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care.
In addition, he co-edited the latest version of the Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Research and Teaching (FASS AG Guide). The guide is used by the USDA and AAALAC, along with agricultural teaching and research institutions in the United States and many others around the world. Recently, McGlone reorganized FASS animal care activities to be more sustainable, that up coming generations of scientists can carry on science-based animal care activities both on farm and in universities and laboratories.
McGlone received his bachelor's and master's degrees in animal science from Washington State University. His doctorate degree in animal science, emphasis in ethology and neuroscience, is from the University of Illinois-Urbana. He is a member of the American Society of Animal Science and the Society for Neuroscience. He has been involved with AAALAC International, the gold standard of laboratory animal care, for more than 30 years. In addition, he has been a champion of collaborations between veterinarians and animal scientists among professional societies and in government and industry.
