Animal Science Graduate Research Forum
From Dr. Janice Swanson: Earlier this February, we had the pleasure of hearing our graduate students and postdoctoral trainees present their research. What a diverse, interesting and impactful array of science being discovered and developed in our department. The presentations were professional in every sense of the word, and it is no wonder that these bright minds go on to incredibly productive careers. I also attribute this to the dedicated faculty mentors who have carefully guided their development. Thank you to Paola Piantoni, Marila Barbosachiavegato and Jessica Shire and assistants for a well-developed scientific program, abstract book and professionally run forum. The attendance was very good, and I appreciate all the faculty and staff members and students who attended. Special thanks to Adam Lock for providing guidance and helping to facilitate the planning.
