The Research Center for Global Agromedicine’s Postgraduate Student Dispatch Program for the Promotion of International Joint Research Projects involves the dispatch of postgraduate students to Cornall University and the University of Wisconsin, providing opportunities for research at world-leading institutions base on international joint efforts with OUAVM.
On January 27, 2020, Mr. NAKAGUN Shotaro (a forth-year doctoral course student at United Graduate School of Veterinary Sciences, Gifu University) reported on his cooperative research and a four-week experience at Cornell University in summer 2019.
First, he introduced his research activities; subsequently, explained about the cooperative research between Professor KOBAYASHI Yoshiyasu, OUAVM and Assistant Professor Andrew Miller with his research group at Cornell University regarding on pathologic studies of naturally occurring animal diseases. Furthermore, he spoke his aspirations: “I have carefully learned more about autopsy techniques, education methods, and residential veterinarians’ diagnostic capacity in Ivy League university in the USA. I hope to tackle research with diversified perspectives through my actual observations.”
Second, Mr. Nakagun advised those students who would like to apply this program to make arrangements ahead of time using services such as the accommodation site Airbnb, Facebook and the official Cornell University online accommodation service.
Question-and answer session, the participants asked many questions regarding research work in Cornell University. Mr. Nakagun has been informally accepted to begin as a residential veterinarian of Cornell University in July 2020, prompting hopes for further progress in the field.
