Throughout October 2020, the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine extended its traditional Phi Zeta Research Day into four virtual events that celebrated student and faculty research across campus.
“Phi Zeta is something our research community looks forward to every year. It’s great to see the interdepartmental collaboration that can be had, as well as the developing expertise of undergraduate, graduate, and veterinary students,” says Dr. Srinand Sreevatsan, associate dean for the College’s Office of Research and Graduate Studies.
The celebration culminated on October 23 with a keynote presentation by Dr. Marulasiddappa Suresh, John E. Butler Professor of Comparative and Mucosal Immunology at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine. The keynote was followed by Dr. Gisella Hussey’s research presentation and the student awards ceremony. This year, one undergraduate, one MS, one PhD, and two DVM students were awarded for their research poster presentations.
Phi Zeta is the honor society of veterinary medicine; it promotes and praises scholarship in the field. First established in 1925 at Cornell University, today, there are 27 chapters established at veterinary schools.
