The forum includes the Litwack Lecture, given annually in honor of the late Dr. Martin Litwack, a Raleigh veterinarian and an early advocate of the College of Veterinary MedicineThis year’s lecture will be presented by Dr. Elodie Ghedin. Dr. Ghedin currently serves in NIAID’s Laboratory of Parasitic Diseases as a senior investigator.

  • A poster session, open to DVM students, graduate students, house officers, and staff.
  • Oral presentations by DVM students, graduate students/house officers, and staff.
  • First Annual Research Image Competition – Do you have a scientific image that is beautiful enough to share?

Images will be enlarged and displayed on Research Day, and winners will be selected by popular vote (fan favorites). The rules are simple:
    – All types of images are welcome – microscopy, protein structure predictions, western blots, clinical photos – anything that you think is visually appealing and is/was part of a research study
    – Everyone is eligible to submit – students, house officers, post docs, staff, faculty
    – The only restriction is that the image must be yours and associated with a past or present research study

CVM faculty will judge poster & oral presentation sessions. Prizes for oral and poster categories will be awarded as follows:

  • The top 2 posters, oral presentations will receive a Top Honor award – $150 each.
