Charles and Audrey Drake Fellowship in Honor of Dr. A.T. Henrici
Dr. Charles H. Drake received his Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota, his major professor and mentor was the great American microbiologist Dr. Arthur T. Henrici.

Jaak Panksepp Memorial Fund
The Jaak Panksepp Memorial Fund was established to support students with a passion for animal well-being and to memorialize one of the college's most esteemed faculty members.
Dr. Panksepp’s internationally recognized work has focused on the nature of the basic emotional systems of the mammalian brain, with the most recent work devoted to analyzing the brain mechanisms that mediate separation distress and social bonding. His discovery of the nature of social joy by studying the psychobiological controls of juvenile playfulness and the accompanying laughter-type sounds has redefined many of the current models of animal emotion understanding. Panksepp joined the WSU faculty in 2006 after retiring from Bowling Green State University where he worked since 1972. At WSU he held the Bernice Gilman Baily and Joseph Baily Endowed Chair in Animal Well-Being Science.
Please join us in celebrating Dr. Panksepp’s lifetime of achievement by becoming a part of this effort.

Microbiology Development Fund
Microbiology Student Aid Fund
During the national campus unrest of the 1970s, the bacteriology department under the leadership of Dr. Herb Nakata “invited state legislators, campus administrators, and interested faculty to a series of racial workshops. These led to the development of policies against racism and the establishment of the departmental Student Aid Fund. Initially supported by faculty and graduate students and later by alumni, this first departmental fund assisted majors from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.” From a Mini- history of the Department of Microbiology at Washington State University by H.M. Nakata, 2001.

MRI Fundraising Campaign
The WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital is the only place in the Pacific Northwest and western Canada that offers high-field MRI that can accurately diagnose patients large and small. In the last 5 years, more than 2000 animals have received MRI scans. Dogs, cats, horses, bald eagles, grizzly bears, sheep, and even a ferret have received enhanced diagnosis—often lifesaving—with this sophisticated machine. For equine patients, MRI is the best way to accurately diagnose soft tissue injuries in a horse's hoof, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. But after 18 years, its lifespan is quickly approaching its end. For our patients the time to act is now.

Gene began a life career with General Mills in Spokane, with various transfers until they settled in Palo Alto, California. As the family moved, Pat worked as a hospital medical technician, bacteriologist for Darigold, VA medical technician, and doctor’s assistant. Gene died in 1976.
