2019 Research Awardees

BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM VETERINARY RESEARCH AWARD FOR GRADUATE VETERINARIANS

The 2019 Boehringer Ingelheim Veterinary Graduate Award was presented to Dr. Amy Stieler Stewart, currently pursuing her PhD at North Carolina State University, for her research on the study and use of intestinal stem cells in repair following ischemic injury. Amy received her DVM at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, where she also completed a residency in large animal internal medicine following an internship in large animal medicine and surgery at the University of Georgia. Her current work focuses specifically on injury following severe ischemia, a condition that plagues not only animals but humans as well. As this condition is largely unpreventable, the major focus is on early recognition, cellular response and repair mechanisms. Amy has a passion for internal medicine, veterinary student education and translational research with the hope of developing new therapies for patients with intestinal injuries.

BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM VETERINARY RESEARCH AWARD FOR VETERINARY STUDENTS

The 2019 Boehringer Ingelheim Veterinary Research Scholar Award was presented to Mariel Covo, an undergraduate student at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine, for her study involving the delivery of vectors to generate CAR T cells in canine patients with B cell lymphoma. This work represents a scientific advance in veterinary medicine, and has clinical implications for the delivery of therapeutic retroviral vectors for use in medical treatment, bridging the fields of human and veterinary medicine.
