UMN well represented at 2016 AASV

UMN students did a fantastic job at the 2016 American Association of Swine Veterinarians (AASV) meeting. Four students presented their projects as a poster presentation and two gave a presentation, reaching 2nd and 3rd position of the student competition. Alyssa Anderson was one of the five students awarded with the Merck-AASV Foundation scholarship.

On the faculty side, Dr. Mike Murtaugh’s research project concerning the development of  a challenge-free model to predict vaccine efficacy, was one of the four recognized by and received support from the AASV Foundation.
