Each spring, the college sets aside a day to celebrate our diverse research activities and to build our research community.

2020 Research Day will be held on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. Additional details will be made available as they are finalized.

Research Day is Wednesday, April 24, 2019

Research Day features formal presentations as well as a lunchtime poster session, where college researchers including veterinary students, graduate students, trainees, staff, and faculty members present their research progress. A keynote speaker from outside of the college, whose work broadly addresses college research efforts, is selected through a process of nominations and voting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Research Day is also a time to recognize outstanding effort with the presentation of graduate student awards and the initiation of new members into Phi Zeta, the honor society of veterinary medicine.
