Three Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine students earned top poster awards during the 18th Northwest Reproductive Sciences Symposium.

The event, which was hosted by the WSU Center for Reproductive Biology and focused on trainee-driven research, brought in 130 registrants from intensive research universities throughout the Pacific Northwest. The scientific program serves to showcase the high quality of regional research in reproductive sciences, fertility and contraception, developmental biology, and animal and human health.

Of the 43 graduate students to present their research, Mariana Ianello Giassetti, from Jon Oatley’s laboratory; Nuha Haque, from Eric Shelden’s laboratory; and Kalli Stephens, from Joy Winuthayanon’s laboratory were each recognized with top poster awards.

Sabrina Haney, a graduate student in animal sciences, submitted the winning design for the symposium’s commemorative T-shirt.

This long-standing series began in 1989 as the WSU and the University of Idaho annual joint minisymposium, but the event now rotates biennially between WSU/UI, Oregon State University, and the Oregon Health Sciences University.
