Ryan and Vanessa travel to D.C. for ASM Microbe

Ryan presented his Masters research on the urine and fecal microbiota of dogs with and without bladder cancer. It was his first in-person poster session and he did a FANTASTIC job and got lots of poster visitors!


Vanessa Hale and Jenessa Winston co-hosted an In-Depth Symposia on translational medicine and the microbiome. Feature speakers (left to right): Sonsiray Alvarez Narvaez, Jan Suchodolski, Aida Vientos-Plotts, Emily Coffey, Jenessa Winston, Azam Ali Sher (who stepped in to share Linda Mansfield’s work), Vanessa Hale


And, we all managed to have a little fun exploring!

Jordan Wins Big at State Science Fair!

Remember Jordan? (High school senior and soon-to-be Buckeye!)

He just won FIRST PLACE for the Animal Sciences/Veterinary Medicine Award at the State Science Fair! He also won FIRST PLACE for the Osmon Ramsey Environmental & Natural Science Award – sponsored by the Ohio Academy of Science,  and he won FIRST PLACE for the Veterinary Medicine Award, sponsored by the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association Auxiliary.  These awards were for his research on the canine gut microbiome and how it varies by breed, age, and sex. WAY TO GO Jordan!
