Congratulations to Jessica Shrake for receiving honorable mention in the student competition (primarily graduate students) at the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists (AAVP) meeting in Denver, CO this past month!  She completed a collaborative research project, Dirofilaria immitis: cryopreservation for diagnostic teaching, with the assistance of Sidney Long, a third year student in Animal Science.  Both Jessica and Sidney volunteered as teaching assistants in the College of Veterinary Medicine within the Veterinary Parasitology Teaching Laboratory and completed the project under the guidance of Dr. Antoinette Marsh. Jessica also received an AAVP travel grant of $500 as the student representative of the Buckeye Parasitology Club which is open to undergraduate and veterinary students.
