Phi Zeta Research Emphasis Day

 

Society of Phi Zeta

 

September 28, 2016

The Phi Zeta Research Emphasis Day is an opportunity for our entire community to be engaged in a discussion of research and to foster the objectives of not only Phi Zeta but those of the School. The structure of this morning’s program is such that it allows everyone to participate. Classes are canceled, and the Veterinary Teaching Hospital is closed except for emergencies.


Two biomedical scientists who have veterinary experience are invited to speak to our students, graduate students, staff and faculty as a single audience. These presentations demonstrate the variety and depth of research efforts and allow for later focused discussions with other LSU scientists. Discussions of summer research opportunities for veterinary students are also held for those interested. Posters are presented by students, post-doctoral fellows and faculty in the interlude between presentations. The presentations inform the school community and visitors of the diverse current research activities within the SVM. Posters presented by advanced studies students and professional students will be judged by a panel of non-SVM scientists for monetary prizes in four categories: (1) Dissertation (PhD) students, (2) Basic research for thesis (MS), professional students, and House Officers and (3) Clinical research for thesis (MS), professional students, and House Officers, (4) Post-doctoral researchers. There are four prizes in groups 1, 2 and 3 and three prizes in group 4. The growth and quality of the event is a measure of the efforts of the SVM community and our commitment to scholarly activity at all levels.

 

Phi Zeta Research Emphasis Day is held the last Wednesday in September. In 2015, it will be held on Wednesday, September 30.  The organizing committee would like to encourage all faculty, post-doctoral researchers, advanced studies students, and professional students to submit abstracts for this event. All presentations will be in poster format.
