We give students first-hand experience with in-depth research through a year-long undergraduate research fellowship. The opportunity for this level of hands-on research is often what sets our students and alumni apart for research positions in industry, as well as top selection for graduate, veterinary and medical schools. Each research fellowship begins in the summer and extends through the spring semester. Renewal for a second year is available.
Current Student Research
Betsy Brown’s research evaluates the effects of administering rumen-protected methionine during the late gestation on the performance of cows.
Anna Kay Gierow’s research focuses on furthering knowledge of why embryo development and implantation occur within mammals.
