2017 Research Symposium
Graduate students showcase their work at 2017 Research Symposium
Graduate students and residents at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine presented their research findings at the 28th Annual Research Symposium on Thursday, March 16. The event showcased graduate student contributions to the college's robust research program, which focuses on One Health to address both animal and human health, with signature programs in the areas of infectious diseases, immune and inflammatory responses, brain cancer, and regenerative medicine.
Master’s and Ph.D. students in the college’s Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences program provided oral and poster presentations. Graduate students from the University of Maryland’s Department of Veterinary Sciences also participated in the symposium.
A panel of faculty judges selected the top oral presentations and posters in both masters and Ph.D. student categories, and winners received prizes at an evening awards banquet held at the Inn at Virginia Tech. A faculty member and staff member were also recognized at the banquet with the Zoetis Award for Veterinary Research Excellence and the Outstanding Co-Worker Recognition Award.
