The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences will host its 11th Annual CVMBS Research Day on Saturday, Jan. 23, at the Hilton Hotel in Fort Collins. CVMBS is consistently ranked first nationally in extramural research funding among colleges of veterinary medicine and Research Day showcases student research that is an important part of the College’s tradition in research excellence. The event is free and open to everyone.
In addition to highlighting cutting edge research and innovative research approaches, the symposium provides an opportunity for local researchers and scientists to connect, enhancing collaborations and communication between basic and clinical researchers alike.
The symposium will begin at noon with a keynote speaker and the Pfizer Award address delivered by Dr. Daniel Gustafson, an Associate Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences. Poster and oral presentations in basic and clinical sciences by graduate and veterinary students, veterinary residents, and interns will follow the keynote and Pfizer addresses.
An awards ceremony at 6:30 p.m. ends the day’s activities. The Golden Pipetter also will be presented during the ceremony, awarded to the department with the greatest participation in the symposium. Last year, the award went to the Department of Clinical Sciences.
