We would like to give a huge congratulations to Kasey Hobert and David Vega for WINNING first place in the CANR Research Symposium, One Health Presentation: Equine Gut Protozoans – The development of the Equine Protozoa Reference Manual on October 30th!
The team was mentored by Alexa Johnson who helped guide them throughout their project and presentation. Hobert and her research partner David Vega earned the top spot in the one health category for their studies on equine gut protozoans. The pair worked on the development of a reference manual. Vega was naturally anxious to present among Ph.D. students and post-doctoral researchers.
“Everyone was so friendly and supportive and it was an incredible learning experience,” said Kasey Hobert, a pre-veterinary medicine and animal biosciences major. “Doing research has been an amazing way to take concepts that I have learned in class and apply them to studying a topic that I am passionate about. For every undergraduate student, I highly recommend getting involved in research.”
