Merck-Merial & Biomedical Research Summer Scholars

The Summer Research Scholars Program exposes veterinary students to careers in research. Interest in these careers is stimulated by providing active research experience through a summer project and by exposing students to successful role models in both the academic and industry side of animal health and biomedical research.
