Meet the cat ISU vets outfitted with very rare prosthetic legs
Cindy Jones first laid eyes on Vincent the cat when he was just a month old. The tiny kitten was brought into the Story County Animal Shelter with injured hind legs, but Jones immediately fell in love. That love led her to the Iowa State veterinary hospital, where Dr. Mary Sarah Bergh, and veterinary orthopedics company BioMedtrix, had the idea to design implants that could be inserted into the femur bones of Vincent's legs and come out through the skin. The procedure is so rare, Bergh estimates fewer than 25 animals in the world have ever had a similar surgery. Vincent's recovery has been long, but his future looks bright. He already walks around very well, and his hind legs will continue to be lengthened until they are as long as his front legs. Dr. Bergh says he will even be jumping and doing other normal cat activities soon. For more information, visit http://www.news.iastate.edu/news/2015/12/02/vincentthecat

ISU Research on the Benefits of Running
Need an incentive to lace up your shoes and go for a run? A new Iowa State University study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, found running for just five or 10 minutes a day can significantly reduce your risk of death from cardiovascular disease. DC (Duck-chul) Lee, lead author of the study and an assistant professor of kinesiology at Iowa State, says runners were 45 percent less likely to die from heart disease or stroke than non-runners. Researchers followed more than 55,000 adults for 15 years to gauge the benefits of running. Lee says runners reduced their risk of cardiovascular disease regardless of distance, duration and speed.

Take a sneak peak at the training ground for ISU's future veterinarians
Iowa State's Clinical Skills Laboratory in the College of Veterinary Medicine is designed to give 1st and 2nd year students a chance to get hands-on experience before treating a live animal. By using life-size models, the lab allows students to get out of the classroom and actually practice a number of clinical procedures. And by allowing students more time in the lab with these models, students gain the motor skills and confidence necessary to perform these surgical procedures on live animals.

He gave it a shot though, and ended up becoming a national champion. As he gets ready to graduate, Kemboi now has his sights set on the 2016 Olympics.

Iowa State chimp researcher reviews "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"
The new motion picture "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" has been a box office blockbuster since it opened last month. One moviegoer who may have a more keen interest than most in the way chimpanzee intelligence was portrayed by Hollywood is Jill Pruetz, an Iowa State professor of anthropology and world renowned chimpanzee researcher. Pruetz earned worldwide acclaim for her studies on the behavior of savanna chimpanzees at the Fongoli research site in Senegal -- particularly the chimps' use of spear-shaped tools in hunting, and their reaction to wildfires. She enjoyed "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," which builds the plot around the near human actions of one chimpanzee, Caesar. Pruetz now provides her review of the movie, as well as insight on what is fact and fiction about the chimps' portrayal and behavior.
