Twelve Florida Veterinary Student Scholars attended the recent National Veterinary Scholars Symposium, held at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

This annual event brings together veterinary medical students from across the country to share their summer research experience as participants. Through the UF Veterinary Student Scholars program, students are provided with a supportive, mentored research experience in an established laboratory and through seminars and discussion groups relating to careers in science.

“Our students all presented at the meeting, and represented UF phenomenally well,” said the college’s program director, Dr. Stan Kim, an associate professor of small animal surgery at the college.

Students’ research topics ranged from mitochondrial function to dart frog parasitism to fracture repair.
