14th Annual CVMBS Research Day
Colorado State University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) invites you to participate in the 14th Annual CVMBS Research Day to be held on January 26, 2013.
The College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences has developed this annual symposium as a way of showcasing the excellent student research that contributes to our success. 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. All members of the CVMBS community are encouraged to participate in this free event!
The 2013 Research Symposium will be held Saturday, January 26, 2013 at the Hilton in Fort Collins, located at 425 West Prospect Road. The symposium will commence at 12:00PM, with a keynote address by Dr. Mark Zabel, the winner of the Pfizer Research Award. Poster and oral presentations in basic and clinical sciences by graduate students, veterinary students, veterinary residents, postdoctoral fellows and interns will follow. As in previous years, outstanding presenters will receive awards of excellence with CASH PRIZES at an awards ceremony at 5:30PM.
We encourage students conducting either clinical or basic science studies from all CVMBS departments to participate in this event. Abstracts are due by December 3, 2012 at 1:00pm. The website for abstract submission with additional instructions can be accessed through the CVMBS homepage.
Authors should indicate a preference for poster or oral presentation, however due to time and space constraints, we may not be able to accommodate all preferences. Abstracts not selected for oral presentation will be assigned to a poster session. Oral presentations will be limited to 10 minutes presentation time with 2-3 minutes for questions. The format for posters will be 36 inches wide x 48 inches tall. We will not be editing abstracts for corrections this year; abstracts submitted on Dec. 3 will be printed in the proceedings as submitted. These abstracts will also be scored as one component of the awards competition.
We look forward to seeing you on January 26th at the Hilton in Fort Collins.
