CSU's Lappin honored for feline research
The award recognizes Lappin's studies of feline infectious and immune-related diseases. His research efforts have focused on infectious disease prevention, vaccine-associated adverse side effects, upper respiratory diseases, infectious causes of fever and diarrhea, and zoonotic diseases in cats.
Lappin will receive a $2,500 cash prize for the award, and a matching scholarship will be granted by the American Veterinary Medical Foundation (AVMF) for a veterinary student interested in feline medicine.
The award will be presented to Lappin at AVMF's recognition event in conjunction with the American Veterinary Medical Association's meeting in Seattle on July 12.
