Small Ruminant Research Forum

Alison Jeffery

Throughout the day, we heard various speakers ranging from a University of Toronto professor talking about the niche market of wool, Animal Health Lab veterinarians, and several vets and students talking about their studies and work. What stood out to me at the Small Ruminant Research Forum was the opening presentation, by the dean of the OAC, Dr. Rene Van Acker.

ORIM Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Symposium - Emmy Luo

Posted May 17, 2018

As a participant in the CORE program, I had the privilege of attending the OIRM Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Symposium in the heart of Toronto. The conference was primarily comprised of medical researchers working to develop human treatments, rather than those targeted at animals; this difference had been what prompted my interest in attending. With a summer filled with interesting animal-centered conferences, I also greatly enjoyed being exposed to human research.

Posted May 17, 2018

As part of the OVC CORE summer program, I had the opportunity to attend the ORIM Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Symposium Held on May 9th. I was particularly interested in this opportunity as I am working on a project based on stem cells and am interested in seeing what other research is occurring out there. The day was packed with 19 different speakers, some of which really caught my attention.

On May 4th 2018, I was given the opportunity to attend the 38th annual SONA conference. The conference was incredibly fascinating and enrichening. It enabled me to see the large diversity of research being done in Neuroscience in Southern Ontario as well as what is to be expected next year when I will hopefully present a poster myself.

ICCI

Posted August 13, 2017

As a participant of the 2017 CORE program, I had the opportunity to attend the 10th annual ICCI symposium at the Ontario Veterinary College. I found the symposium to be a very informative event where I was able to learn about the research being conducted by various groups at the OVC. Although my interests and research focus are primarily on human health and medicine, I have started to appreciate the tremendous amount of research that is initially targeted for veterinary patients, but ends up having tremendous applicability for human patients as well.

Animal Health Laboratorians: how the “detectives” of the veterinary world improve public health and food safety

Posted August 11, 2017

When most people think of veterinarians, they picture a veterinarian working in a clinic or traveling from farm-to-farm in their truck. However, there’s an entire area of veterinary medicine that the general public doesn’t normally see – and that’s veterinary diagnostic labs. Although laboratorians don’t always directly interact with clients and patients, they have a pivotal role in public health and disease surveillance.

Posted August 11, 2017

On May 23rd 2017, I attended the Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses Symposium. This presentation is held every year during the summer and is a way to bring together all the forms of public health and disease prevention.

Posted August 11, 2017

On June 7th I had the opportunity to attend the Canadian Association of Veterinary Pathologists 43rd Annual Meeting held at the Ontario Veterinary College. It was a small conference and I was one of the lucky few students who were able to watch very talented pathologists present to their colleagues.
