CAH has organized a seminar series to support first-generation graduate students at WSU. The objective of this series is to provide first-gen grad students with a space where they can share the challenges that they are facing in graduate school. In addition, these meetings will help the first-gen students from various departments at WSU build a community across disciplines.

Join us in person for our annual weekend Veterinary Spring Conference. There will be a large and small animal track and a track for technicians & assistants. We encourage veterinarians, technicians, and assistants to attend.
This program offers 12 hours of continuing education credit.
The conference begins Friday afternoon with the Bustad Distinguished Lecture.
KSED offers students in grades K-5 the opportunity to learn basic science and engineering principles through fun, hands-on activities. We partner with various organizations across WSU to provide engaging activities to teach science and engineering concepts. The WSU students are excited to teach your kids about science and engineering!
Adjuvant additives significantly increase vaccine efficacy. However, adjuvants also cause inflammatory side-effects, such as pyrexia, which currently limits their use. To address this, we created a thermophobic vaccine adjuvant engineered to attenuate potency at temperatures correlating to pyrexia. Thermophobic adjuvants were synthesized by combining a rationally designed trehalose glycolipid CLR agonist with thermoresponsive poly-N-isoporpylacrylamide (NIPAM) via Reversible Addition-Fragmentation Chain-Transfer polymerization.
