EMC students and house officers were well in evidence at the 2015 CVM Research Forum held this past Friday, September 18th, 2015. The key note speaker for the largest research forum in recent history was Dr. Robin Warren, Nobel Laureate for his work on the importance of Helicobacter in gastrointestinal disease. His talk to an overflow audience was well received by the DVM, Graduate Students, House Officers and Faculty able to attend. The day of science gave the opportunity for budding scientists at all stages of their career to gain experience presenting in a large forum.

Dr. Brianne Phillips, the senior resident in zoological medicine made the podium, when her presentation “POPULATION PHARMACOKINETICS OF ENROFLOXACIN AND ITS METABOLITE CIPROFLOXACIN IN THE GREEN SEA URCHIN (STRONGYLOCENTROTUS DROEBACHIENSIS) FOLLOWING INTRACOELOMIC AND IMMERSION ADMINISTRATION” won second place in the hotly contested oral presentation division which featured 45 scientific presentations.
