College Research Day

Advances in Veterinary Medicine Research Day

SAVE THE DATE FOR 2019 = APRIL 4, 2019 - Keynote Speaker & Poster Presentations

April 5, 2018 - Keynote Speaker & Poster Presentations

Advances in Veterinary Medicine Day showcases the research and scholarship accomplishments of veterinary students, residents, graduate students and faculty in the college. It brings the college community together to learn about exciting research being carried out by colleagues. Travel grants are awarded to the best student poster presentations in each of the five areas of study: immunology and infectious diseases, molecular and cellular biology, structure and function, clinical research, and epidemiology and applied research. The awards help students fund their travel to a national or international scientific meeting to present their research.

This year's faculty chair is Dr. Greg Habing, assistant professor in the Department of Veterinary Preventive Medicine.

Awards Presentation and Keynote Address - April 5th at 12:00 pm in the VMC Auditorium.


The 2018 Keynote Speaker will be Dr. H. Morgan Scott, professor in the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology at Texas A&M University. Much of Dr. Scott's research emphasis has been on studying factors impacting antimicrobial resistance among commensal and pathogenic enteric bacteria in food animal production systems, with a program spanning the realm from the molecular to the sociological. In particular, he is interested in applying both epidemiological and ecological approaches to quantify the emergence, propagation, dissemination, and persistence of resistant enteric bacterial strains in integrated populations of animals, their food products, and humans.  The title of his keynote is "Use, Overuse and Misuse of Antibiotics in Food Animal Agriculture: Do Bacteria Know the Difference; If so, How do They Let us Know?"
