Merial Veterinary Scholar Program for summer 2010

June 18th, 2010

The summer research program for 2010 will be kicked off with an entire day of seminars on Tuesday, June 22, all of which will be held in Dryden Hall 213. The schedule of presentations is:

  • Laboratory Note Book Keeping Dr. Jean Hall
  • IRB and ACUPDr. Kathy Magnusson
  • Reading of Scientific PublicationsDr. Katja Zellmer
  • Experimental Design and Statistical Analysis – Dr. Aurora Villarroel
  • Experimental Design and Animal ModelsDr. Debbie Mustacich

The objective of the program is to provide an opportunity for students enrolled in the professional veterinary program (designated as Merial Veterinary Scholars) to have a faculty-guided, positive, and rewarding research experience in the basic or clinical sciences. In addition, the program provides an introduction to research issues, facilities, opportunities, and current research topics. The format is a research experience that occurs primarily in the summer, but literature search, proposal writing, and project planning all occur prior to the summer. The goal of the program is to increase the number of graduating veterinarians who choose a career in research that focuses on animal health and disease. The program is considered successful if it increases student awareness of the excitement and challenges of the research process, and of course, if it increases the number of DVMs who choose a research-related career. Dr. Christiane Löhr is faculty advisor for the program. More information about the Merial Veterinary Scholar Program can be found on our website.
