Phi Zeta Day Celebrates

CVM student Tony Dank discusses the results of his research with Dr. Marlyn Whitney, an associate clinical professor in the CVM Department of Veterinary Pathobiology.

Lindsay Donnelly, a graduate student in biomedical sciences, captured first place honors in the poster category during the 35th Phi Zeta Research Day. She discusses her research with Dr. Senthil Kumar, a researcher with MU’s Comparative Oncology Laboratory.

Members of the MU College of Veterinary Medicine chapter of Phi Zeta held their 35th annual Research Day May 4. Veterinary students, interns, residents and graduate students within the college had an opportunity to present their studies and findings in either a poster or a lecture format. A total of 51 presentations were made.

Carolyn Henry, DVM, MS, professor of oncology in the Department of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, director of the Scott Endowed Program in Veterinary Oncology, interim associate director of research at Ellis Fischel Cancer Center and One Health/One Medicine Mizzou Advantage facilitator, presented the keynote address, “An Opportunistic Researcher’s Guide to Making Lemonade.”

An evening banquet featured the induction of new members into the honor society. There were 11 members from the Class of 2012, 10 members from the Class of 2013, three interns and five honorary members welcomed into the local chapter. Phi Zeta was founded in 1925, with the CVM Pi Chapter chartered in 1965. The event was sponsored by The CVM Dean’s Office, the Office of Research and Nestle Purina.
