About Phi Zeta Research Day
The primary activity for the Society of Phi Zeta Sigma Chapter is our annual Research Day. The Research Day was established to showcase the research efforts of veterinary students, house officers, graduate students, and instructors at the College of Veterinary Medicine.
All researchers within the College of Veterinary Medicine are encouraged to participate as this day provides a unique opportunity to share research in a local, encouraging and instructional environment. It is also an excellent opportunity to network, establishing mentorships and research collaborations within the College.
Both oral and poster presentations are received, and awards for these are conferred during a Reception and Ceremony that evening. Additional scholarships and awards are also presented, including the A.S.R. Ganta Veterinary Student and Graduate Student Awards, the Benjamin Kurz Research Scholarship, the Dr. Horst W. and Elizabeth A. Leipold Award, the Miller Pathology Scholarship, the Dr. Harish C. and Ved K. Minocha Scholarship, the Dr. Charles E. Cornelius Award in Anatomy and Physiology, the Mahlon Vorhies Production Animal Award, and finally the prestigious Zoetis Award for Veterinary Research Excellence to an outstanding member of faculty.
The Research Day also features a keynote address by the Kenneth D. Olson invited lecturer.
Zoetis and Royal Canin are proud sponsors of the Society of Phi Zeta Sigma Chapter’s Research Day.
