Student Research Symposium
Students who were engaged in research in the College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011 presented a poster session on October 27 detailing their work. Over 70 posters were presented of which 52 were considered for our inaugural poster competition.
The poster contest was divided into an advanced category for students who have been working on their projects for >2 years, and a second category for starting graduate students, DVM students and undergraduate students who are participating in research within the College of Veterinary Medicine 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.
