Dr. Frank O. Bastian is Professor working for Department: School of Animal Sciences at LSU AgCenterand his research centers around a lifetime work searching for the causal agent of the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE). He has shown that a wall-less bacterium, spiroplasma, is consistently associated with the TSEs. Recently at LSU Agricultural Center, he and collaborators in the Dept. of Veterinary Science have developed a Ruminant Model of TSE that will be used to study pathogenic mechanisms involved in the spiroplasmosis models. In collaboration with Dr. Thune, a genomic study will be conducted on the putative organism, which should dramatically help understand the role of spiroplasma in TSE.
