UK Summer Research Program

The objective of the University of Kentucky Summer Research Program is to provide veterinary students a concentrated research training program 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 Diganositc Laboratory and participate 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 different formats (oral, poster and manuscript).

LMU-CVM Summer Research Program

Summer research program at LMU-CVM offers veterinary students 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 read research papers, (2) define and formulate research questions, (3) formulate a testable hypothesis, (4) test a hypothesis using standardized techniques, (5) troubleshoot and think about alternative approaches to a problem, (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.
