About the Program
The Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine (AUCVM) invites veterinary students interested in participating in a mentored research program during the summer of 2013 to apply to our Veterinary Scholars Research Program. The Program is co-sponsored by the Merial Veterinary Scholars Program and the AUCVM.
The purpose of the program is to promote intensive involvement of veterinary students in laboratory research with faculty at the AUCVM. Summer scholars work on research projects that will enable them to test hypotheses, pursue specific objectives, conduct “bench” research, interpret data, and present their research findings. Mentors for the students are highly experienced research faculty with established research programs. They are enthusiastic advocates for the Summer Research Program enriching the experience with expert lectures and workshops designed to train scholars in the practice of science as well as directing the scholars’ research projects.
