Congratulations to Brigitte Martin, a graduate in our lab, who received a Couvillion Award from the College of Veterinary Medicine, Mississippi State University. Brigitte will use this award for travel expenses to attend a scientific meeting to present the results of her research.
Background for Couvillion Award: In January of 2007, Linda Couvillion McGrath and Family established the C. EDWARD COUVILLION, DVM, PHD, ENDOWED GRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP at Mississippi State University. The scholarship was established because of the impact that Dr. Couvillion had on the lives of everyone he came in contact with and because of his dedication to teaching, service, and research. This endowed graduate scholarship is the first endowment in the MSU-CVM Office for Research and Graduate Studies. The awardee must be actively involved in research and whose career goal will lead to further research, and studies in parasitology and/or wildlife diseases will be favored.
