The lab traveled to Chicago this weekend for the Conference for Research Workers in Animal Disease (CRWAD). The students had the opportunity to learn about the interesting research happening at other universities as well as learn from leaders in the field at the American Association of Veterinary Immunologists (AAVI) Symposium. Students also had the opportunity to share their research and practice scientific communication skills during the poster symposium. Conferences offer great opportunities for graduate students to meet new people and network and this conference was no exception! Abuelo lab members had a great time getting to know the McGill lab from Iowa State University, who knows what collaborations might come out of these new friendships. The trip ended with a sweet trip to Ghirardelli for ice cream! Overall, everyone had a great time learning and sharing their research with like-minded individuals who are passionate about improving animal health and welfare!
