The focus of the symposium is Precision Mouse Modeling: Translation to Human Disease and in addition to speakers from the University of Missouri, we have invited speakers from the Jackson Laboratory, University of California-Davis as well as University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center.

After two months of coordinating with the City of Columbia, University of Missouri-Columbia, and the University of Missouri CVM, we have made the decision to POSTPONE Dog Jog 2019 to the fall. We have investigated every option available for this spring, but due to necessary soft road closures, student schedules and CVM/Main Campus events, the best option for optimal participation will be in the fall. The TENTATIVE proposed date will be Saturday, September 21, 2019. Please be on the lookout for an email confirming this date in July/August. We will continue to accept T-shirt contest submissions until May 3rd and vote on a winner this fall. As we iron out this road bump, we look forward to improving Dog Jog for both our human and animal participants. Thank you all for your patience and understanding with this CHANGE. Looking forward to seeing everyone during the cool fall weather!

Research Council Grants are awarded to support research, scholarship, and creative activities conducted by tenured, tenure‐track, and ranked non‐tenure track faculty members, with an earned doctorate (or the discipline’s highest earned terminal degree; e.g., MFA), at the level of Assistant Professor and above.
Requests for Research Council funding that are clearly aligned with institutional priorities for research, scholarship, and creative activities are of great importance to the Office of Research. These priorities include, for instance, activities that lead to book contracts with academic publishers, juried theater and music performances and art exhibits, peer-reviewed research articles in AAU-endorsed journals (https://libraryguides.missouri.edu/WhereToPublish/AAUMetrics), and the generation of robust pilot data to bolster proposals for external funding.
Research Council Grants provide funds for project expenses totaling as much as $10,000. There are two levels of funding: Small grants are for requests up to $1,000 and large grants are for requests greater than $1,000 and to the maximum of $10,000.
Each year, the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) sponsors Out of the Darkness Campus and Community walks to honor the memory of those we have lost due to suicide and support the funding of research, creation of educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss and prevention. Suicide and depression are unfortunately a huge part of our chosen profession, and we want to do all that we can in order to help the Not One More Vet movement.
This year, the MU-CVM Wellness Team has created a team, which we encourage you all to join. The details of when and where the walk are below, as well as a link to sign-up. It doesn’t cost anything to sign-up, and even if you are working in the clinic on the day of the walk, you can join as a virtual walker to show your support. If you raise $150 in fundraising, you also get a free t-shirt on the day. If you do choose to register, our team name is “MU-CVM Wellness Team”.
Check-in/Registration Time: 11:00 am
Program Begins: 1:30 pm
Walk Starts: 2:00 pm
Walk Ends: 4:00 pm
The Internal Medicine Faculty members are thrilled to invite you to our conference Saturday, October 26, 2018 that will provide 8 hours of quality continuing education in one day!
The attached brochure outlines the details. We will begin registration at 8:30 AM, October 26th at the Adams Conference Center, and lectures will begin at 9:00 AM. Please join us for this day full of updates in small animal internal medicine. We have pre-approval for continuing education credit from the Missouri Veterinary Medical Board, so credit can be used for this year or can be carried over into 2020.
Thanks to generous sponsorship from Bayer, registration fees are waved for the faculty, staff and students of MU CVM along with the MU CVM class of 2019.
If you elect to take advantage of our complimentary registration we ask that you please fill out the attached registration form, indicate you are a CVM member and return the form to Teresa Egbert. Part of the registration fee for participants covers the cost of refreshments and meals. For this reason we ask that if you elect to use the complimentary registration, please allow paying participants to select meals and refreshments first. You are welcome to have refreshments after the paying participants have finished or you can bring your own meals/snacks.
We would like to thank Bayer, our conference sponsor.
