“Support from the Stamps Foundation will help me follow my dream of having a career doing translational research, teaching and practicing veterinary medicine. The opportunity to meet individuals in different fields and travel to national meetings is critical for developing a well-rounded academic researcher, and the Stamps Scholarship promotion of these opportunities will let me make the most of my graduate studies.”
