Student Research Symposium Oct 2010


Students who were engaged in research in the College of Veterinary Medicine in 2010 presented a poster session on October 26 detailing their work. The Student Research Symposium is sponsored by Zoetis Animal Health.

A major purpose of this event is to recognize (and learn from) the efforts of students and trainees–veterinary students, undergraduate students, graduate students, and residents/interns – who contribute to the research mission of the college and profession.
