Two veterinary medical students featured on UF website

Two third-year University of Florida veterinary medical students, Lauren Brown and Geoffrey Zann, are featured on the newly redesigned UF website.

The site, which launched in early November, was created to enhance content relating to UF faculty, staff and students on many levels, particularly with exciting visuals and additional short story features on faculty members and students in a variety of categories. In the Admissions section, Brown and Zann were listed in the professional category.

Brown’s profile reads as follows:

Upon receiving an undergraduate degree in biology and chemistry, Lauren applied to the University of Florida because of its “laboratory, aquatic and exotic animal programs, groundbreaking research and the exceptional faculty,” she said. “I have not been disappointed!” Her work at the Wildlife and Aquatic Veterinary Disease Laboratory led to the characterization of the deadly morbillivirus that caused the 2013 epizootic bottlenose dolphin event.

Zann’s profile reads as follows:

After serving on active duty with the U.S. Navy on the Somali Coast and in Afghanistan, Geoffrey is now leading research to help solve the most common orthopaedic problem seen in veterinary practices around the world. His breakthrough on the motion of the kneecap after surgery in dogs earned him the highly competitive national 2015 Merial Veterinary Research Scholar Award. More importantly, it has the potential to impact the entire veterinary surgical community, and just might make life better for your canine friend.
