Animal science society recognizes three K-Staters

Submitted by Communications and Marketing

Two Kansas State University doctoral students and a recent graduate were selected as Animal Science Young Scholars, a program offered by the Midwest Section of the American Society of Animal Science.

Selected were Julia Holen, doctoral student in animal science; Kara Dunmire, doctoral student in grain science; and Miriam Martin, December 2021 doctoral graduate in physiology.

The Young Scholars program recognizes and features the research accomplishments of recent Doctor of Philosophy graduates or current Doctor of Philosophy students in the advanced stages of their program — within 12 months of degree completion. This program provides promising scholars opportunities to present timely research findings to an audience of academic and industry professionals in a forum that allows in-depth discussion of contemporary research techniques and findings.

Invited participants are asked to give a 30-minute presentation at the Midwest Section meeting. Inclusion of such presentations bolsters the quality and scope of graduate student research that is reported at the American Society of Animal Science Midwest Section meeting and allows the association to highlight the next generation of scientists who will be serving it in the future.
