Student Represents OSU at International Congress

August 27th, 2014

Megan-LeeCVM senior student Megan Lee recently presented her research at the 2014 International Union of Microbiological Societies Congresses (IUMS) held in Montreal, Quebec Canada.  She was the winner of the OSU CVM Summer Research Day 2013, which provided the travel funds to IUMS.

The research she presented to the international audience of microbiologists was entitled “Investigation of bovine herpesvirus type -1 immune response in a cattle herd”, a project conducted in Ling Jin’s laboratory during the summer of 2013. Lee’s research addresses differences in immune response to vaccines and clinical isolates in different age groups of cows. She identified the antibody titers decreased significantly at 6 month post-vaccination which raised questions on current vaccine policies and schedules in cattle.

The International Congress for Microbiology is divided into three separate sections covering the fields of bacteriology, virology, and mycologym, while maintaining the threads of pathogenesis and immunology that blend these fields together. Topics covered by the meeting are science, microbiology, infection, mycology, bacteriology, virology, health, bioscience, and infectious diseases in both humans and animals.

This was an excellent opportunity for a veterinary student to participate in world-renowned research and communicate her findings to the scientific community while representing OSU CVM.
