Highlights from the BI-sponsored 2018 National Veterinary Scholars Symposium
With temperatures soaring this summer, 12 veterinary students discovered that the laboratory was the cool place to be. On July 31, the students presented the results of research they had completed as part of the Veterinary Research Scholars Program, or VRSP. This program aims to give first and second year students with limited lab experience an introduction to biomedical research.
“This program provides the students with an opportunity to learn what goes into a research project and to generate a manuscript,” said Dr. Elizabeth Davis, associate professor in Clinical Sciences. “For some students, that will allow them an opportunity — perhaps a career opportunity — to choose that they may otherwise would not have selected.”
The Veterinary Research Scholars Program is an intensive research-oriented experience directed towards attracting our most talented professional students into biomedical research careers.
