2015 Merial-NIH Veterinary Scholars Program Symposium Gives Students the Inside Track on Careers in Research

Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine had nine students present their research at the 2015 Merial-NIH National Veterinary Scholars Symposium hosted by the University of California at Davis. The 2015 symposium entitled “Solving Complex Challenges at the Interface of Humans, Animals and their Environment” attracted 433 veterinary students from across the globe. Cummings School students who presented research posters, included:

  • Kelsey Turley, V’17
  • Isabel Francisco, V’18
  • Andrew Gestrich, V’17
  • Arianne Baker, V’17
  • Alexandra Bemis, V’18

The Merial Veterinary Scholars Program (MVSP) enables veterinary schools to introduce first and second-year veterinary medical students to biomedical research. By providing a supportive environment in which students help conduct research in an established laboratory, complemented by seminars and discussion groups on careers in science, the participants gain insight into careers in biomedical research.
