The American Dairy Science Association (ADSA®), the international organization of educators, scientists, and industry representatives who are committed to advancing the dairy industry, recently announced the winners of professional and student awards for 2021. The winners will be recognized during the association’s annual meeting.
The purpose of these programs is to recognize and feature the research accomplishments
of recent Ph.D. graduates or current Ph.D. students in the advanced stages of their
program (i.e. within 12 months of degree completion) at the annual Midwestern
ADSA/ASAS meetings. Both ADSA and ASAS recognize promising individuals
separately as either an ADSA Midwest Branch Young Dairy Scholar or an ASAS
Midwestern Section Animal Science Young Scholar.
These programs provide promising scholars within the Midwest Branch ADSA and
Midwestern Section ASAS with opportunities to present timely research findings to an
audience of academic and industry professionals in a forum that allows in-depth
discussion of contemporary research techniques and findings. Invited participants in each
program will present a 30-minute presentation on their dissertation topic at the Midwest
ADSA/ASAS annual meeting. Inclusion of such presentations bolsters the quality and
scope of graduate student research that is reported at Midwest ADSA/ASAS meetings
and allows our associations to highlight the next generation of scientists who will be
serving the Societies in the future. The intent of the Young Scholars Program is to
recognize accomplishments of students in many disciplines through an invited
presentation format; it is not intended as a competition.
Of the four recipients, three hold ties to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Animal and Dairy Sciences Department – Megan Connelley, Ryan Pralle, and Billy Brown.
Young Scholar Presentations Include:
Elucidating the seratonin-calcium axis.
