Graduate Forum

Each year, ASGSA hosts a one-day event – the Division of Animal Science Graduate Research Forum. This Forum is an opportunity for all of our graduate students to present their research in a relaxed environment and get feedback from peers and professors.

The day consists of 15 minute oral and poster presentations from M.S. And Ph.D. students, concluding with a keynote address and BBQ/Social. This year our keynote address is an Animal Science Alumni Panel that consists of three members.

Abstracts for the 2018 Grad Forum are due May 1st and have a word limit of 300. They can be emailed to me lmm43b@mail.missouri.edu. Please indicate in the email whether you plan to give an oral or poster presentation.

Please make an effort to participate in this year’s Grad Forum. If you are presenting at Life Science Week or other conferences in the near future, Grad Forum is a great opportunity to get additional feedback. If you are a new grad student and don’t have a lot of data yet, that is fine too, we would love to hear about what you are planning to do and/or your preliminary work.

Please note that participation in either Life Science Week or Grad Forum is required for accessing departmental travel funds.

If you have any questions, contact Lauren Mayo at lmm43b@mail.missouri.edu.
