2006 CVMBS Research Day Features Innovative Projects
Students and faculty alike enjoyed a chance to meet and view each others' research work during the annual CVMBS Research Day held this year at the Hilton Hotel, on Saturday, Feb. 4.
Dr. Terry Nett, Associate Dean and a Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences, opened the proceedings, and was followed by Dr. Mike Globe who presented the keynote address. Dr. Globe is the Robert Rifkin Professor for prostate cancer research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. His lecture, "Lessons from an Academic Career," charted the course of his scientific career and he shared lessons he had learned along the way including the importance of risk taking, sabbaticals, and a balanced life.
Dr. Sandra Quackenbush, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Pathology, and the Pfizer Research Award Winner, presented a lecture on "Walleye Dermal Sarcoma Virus: Mechanisms of Oncogenesis and Tumor Regression." The rest of the afternoon was devoted to oral presentations and the poster sessions. Students explained their work to an appreciative audience, while judges examined the research and made their decisions on the award winners. Participants included students in the Professional Veterinary Medical Program, graduate students, post-docs and faculty members. The day ended with a social hour and presentation of awards.
Judges for the event were Drs. Jeffrey Wilusz, Jean Ku, Paul Lunn, Jennifer MacLeay, Tracy Davis, Pat McCue, Barbara Sandborn, Todd Farmerie, M.D. Salman, George Seidel, Robert Callan, Kathy Lunn, and William Dernell. The College would like to recognize Heska, the event sponsor.
