Checking for Ticks!

Last week, We had our first Tick Identification Wet Lab sponsored by Merck! Dr. Tiana Sanders and Ian Daniel (both tick experts in the Verocai Lab) gave presentations about common ticks one might see at their veterinary clinic and how to identify them. The lab also had an interactive component where students went from station to station looking at tick specimens and becoming familiar with their traits. This was a great collaboration with Dr. Jennifer Scata and Merck and we hope to continue this supplemental learning for students in the future!
