CVM students, interns, residents, and graduate and postdoctoral students presented their scholarly research projects in either poster format or oral lectures. A total of 78 abstracts were presented. During an evening banquet, 22 new members were inducted into Phi Zeta, which is the honor society of veterinary medicine, and more than $7,500 in awards were distributed for research excellence.

The day also featured a keynote presentation by veterinary epidemiologist Emily Pieracci, DVM, MPH, of the Centers for Disease Control Division of High Consequence Pathogens and Pathology, Poxvirus and Rabies Branch.
