The Merial Veterinary Scholars Program

Since 1989, Merial has actively participated in funding research programs at veterinary schools to provide students with an opportunity to experience research first-hand. The Merial Veterinary Scholars Program includes a national symposium where research findings are presented and experiences are shared among the year's veterinary scholars and the invited veterinary faculty.

Merial Veterinary Scholars Program Mission Statement

The mission of the Merial Veterinary Scholars Program is to provide an opportunity for veterinary schools to introduce first and second year veterinary medical students to biomedical research. By providing a supportive environment in which students can experience research in an established laboratory, complemented by seminars and discussion groups on the scientific process, ethics, and research opportunities, the participants will gain insight into careers in biomedical research.
