(December 17, 2009 Stillwater, OK) – Congratulations to Adam Stern, DVM, resident in the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology at Oklahoma State University’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences! Stern won the 2nd place Young Investigator Award for his poster presentation, “Disseminated Cutaneous Mast Cell Tumors with Epitheliotropism and Systemic Mastocytosis in a Domestic Cat.”
Stern also received a 2009 Student Scholarship Award in Veterinary Pathology from the C.L. Davis Foundation. Both awards were given at the annual meeting of the American College of Veterinary Pathologists recently held in Monterey, California.
“Adam is an extremely hard-working and curious resident and most certainly deserving of the CL Davis Award,” said Dr. Jerry Ritchey, professor in the center’s Department of Veterinary Pathology. “Furthermore, I had a feeling at the meeting that he was going to place in the poster competition because I had colleagues from other institutions telling me what an outstanding poster he had even before the award was announced.”
Originally from New York, Stern earned his DVM degree at the University of Prince Edward Island, Atlantic Veterinary College and is currently in his third and final year of his residency program in anatomic pathology at OSU. In July of 2010, Stern will be working at the Division of Animal Health for the state of New Jersey in the state diagnostic laboratory.
