Daniel Brown, Ph.D., a scientist at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, recently became chairman of the International Organization for Mycoplasmology, a nonprofit scientific group dedicated to the study of a type of bacteria that infect a wide variety of animals. His term will be from 2012 to 2014.

An associate professor in the college’s department of infectious diseases and pathology, Brown served for the past two years as chairman-elect and has been actively involved in the IOM for many years. His installation as IOM chairman took place in July at the IOM’s annual meeting in France. Brown’s work focuses on genetic and taxonomic analyses of pathogenic mycoplasmas and the diseases they may cause in animals and humans.

His research has been supported by the National Institutes of Health, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Morris Animal Foundation, the UF University Scholars Program and the Merck-Merial Veterinary Scholars Program.
