Candace Croney to Lead the New Center for Animal Welfare Science at Purdue University

ccroneyCandace Croney was named the inaugural director of the new Center for Animal Welfare Science on the campus of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. The new center will focus on animal well-being in animal and poultry science, veterinary medicine, and scientific research.

“Members of the sciences and animal industries are often perceived as being uncaring or tone deaf on issues pertaining to animal well-being,” Dr. Croney said. “Purdue’s investment in creating a Center for Animal Welfare Science is a timely and necessary step toward changing this perception. The new center will permit exploration of both the scientific and socio-ethical issues underlying public concerns.”

Dr. Croney is an associate professor of animal sciences at Purdue University. She is a graduate of Rutgers University and holds a master’s degree and a Ph.D. from Pennsylvania State University.
