Summer Research Programs
University of Kentucky Summer Research Program
The objective of this program is to provide veterinary students with concentrated research training opportunities during the summer semester. Students will perform full-time research under supervision of faculty mentors at the University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Center and Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, participating in all activities of their host laboratories. Students will be exposed to all aspects of research, including formulation of a hypothesis, designing of experiments, performing bench research, analysis of data, and presentation of results in various formats (oral, poster and manuscript). Students may present their findings at local or regional conferences, including the LMU-CVM Research Day.
LMU-CVM Summer Research Program
Summer research program at LMU-CVM offers veterinary students an opportunity to work full-time on research projects at LMU-CVM’s Harrogate and Ewing campuses. Providing our students opportunities to experience a rich biomedical research environment is a priority of our school. Students will acquire skill sets to (1) critically evaluate research papers, (2) define and formulate research questions, (3) formulate a testable hypothesis, (4) test a hypothesis using standardized techniques, (5) troubleshoot and consider alternative approaches to problems, (6) analyze results, and (7) effectively communicate research findings. Students will attend lectures/seminars on bioethics, research methodologies, research career paths, and current topics in veterinary research. Students will receive mandatory training in biosafety, laboratory best practices, blood-borne pathogens and chemical hazards. In addition, coaching in poster preparation/presentation, public speaking and manuscript writing will be provided. Students may present their findings at local or regional conferences, including the LMU-CVM Research Day.
