Research Day

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

RESEARCH DAY – APRIL 27, 2022

Research Day features formal presentations as well as afternoon 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.

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.

The Pensinger Lecture in Comparative Medicine; Keynote Address
