Leadership changes at the Food Animal Health Research Program

Following an exemplary 45
year career, Dr. Mo Saif retired in January as the leader of the Food Animal
Health Research Program (FAHRP) at the Ohio Agricultural Research and
Development Center (OARDC) in Wooster. He is recognized internationally as a
leading researcher in poultry diseases and influenza viruses that can be shared
between different animal species. Read more about his career here.
Dr. Jeff LeJeune is the newly appointed director of FAHRP and assistant dean in
the College of Veterinary Medicine. Trained as a veterinarian and a
microbiologist, Dr. LeJeune now leads the program that includes about 75
faculty, staff, and students focused on the health of food-producing animals.
Dr. LeJeune also recognizes FAHRP’s critical role in the university’s areas of
research focus, or “Discovery Themes,” of Health and Wellness, Food Production
and Security, and Energy and Environment. In addition, FAHRP researchers are
important participants in the national “One Health
initiative, which addresses the overlap between animal health, human health and
the environment. More information the program is available here
