Submitted by Joe Montgomery

Sara Thomasy

The College of Veterinary Medicine and Sigma Chapter of the Phi Zeta Veterinary Honors Society invites the university community to attend its annual Research Day, from noon to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 1.

The event will start with lunch and a keynote address at noon by Sara Thomasy, professor in the surgical and radiological sciences department in the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis. The title of the lecture is "Novel treatments for corneal endothelial disease." Thomasy is a core scientist at the California National Primate Research Center and co-runs a large, interdisciplinary vision science laboratory with Christopher Murphy and Paul Russell. Her research interests include large animal models for anterior segment disease and corneal wound healing.

The afternoon will continue with oral abstract presentations by undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate researchers affiliated with the college. A formal poster session will occur between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. Evening refreshments will be served at 5 p.m., followed by the recognition and awards ceremony.

Phi Zeta Research Day is an opportunity to gain insight into the breadth and impact of the research taking place at the College of Veterinary Medicine, as well as meet with the researchers themselves.
