Dr. John Bailey, a professor in the Nurse Anesthesia Program at The University of Southern Mississippi, has been accepted to full membership in the American Society for Investigative Pathology (ASIP), the leading professional society in the United States for biomedical scientists who investigate the basic mechanisms of disease.
Successful candidates for full regular membership have conducted, published, or supported the conduct of meritorious original research in pathology or a related discipline. Bailey has co-authored research papers as part of multidisciplinary teams in two international journals, the Journal of Drug Targeting and the Journal of Cancer Therapy, related to his interests in cancer cell biology.
Bailey began his research career studying the biology of skeletal muscle cells, their metabolism, and their neural control. He became interested in cancer cells due to their metabolic similarities with muscle cells during exercise. ASIP is a constituent society of the Federation of American Societies of Experimental Biology (FASEB), the leading fundamental biomedical research organization in the United States.
Bailey has been a member of two other FASEB societies, the American Association of Anatomists, for 20 years, and the American Physiological Society, for 14 years. He received national recognition for his teaching in 2000 and 2004 while at the College of Veterinary Medicine at Mississippi State University and in 2012 while at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at William Carey University.
In 2004, he co-authored the world’s leading textbook of veterinary medical physiology, Duke’s Physiology of Domestic Animals, published by Cornell University Press.
Bailey has been instrumental in helping shape the Nurse Anesthesia Program at Southern Miss since its inception in 2013.
