The UW School of Veterinary Medicine will host a Scientific Symposium to Celebrate 101 Years of Veterinary Medical Sciences at the University of Wisconsin–Madison on Saturday, June 23.

The event will highlight the research of current faculty and students at the School of Veterinary Medicine, as well as alumni who have continued their work in industry, government facilities, or other schools across the world.

In addition to the talks, held in the Microbial Sciences Building and the School of Veterinary Medicine, there will be a pathology open house, hosted from 9:30 a.m. to noon in the School of Veterinary Medicine. The anatomical and clinical pathologists facilitating this open house will offer one-on-one “consultations,” presenting interesting cases and unusual specimens up close.

The symposium will cap a three-day-long reunion that includes the Century Celebration on Thursday and Friday and the Alumni Reunion Picnic on Saturday. For more information about the symposium, including a full program of the talks offered, see the symposium and reunion website.
