Researchers in the Animal Welfare Program rely on enthusiastic undergraduate research assistants to help them with their projects, from hands-on data collection to video analysis. This way the undergraduates learn about research and gain hands on experience working with animals.
On March 23rd several of our star undergraduates presented at UBC’s MURC (Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference). Topics ranged from finding new innovative ways to measure social behavior in dairy cows to studying the resting behavior of dogs in boarding kennels.
Students enrolled in APBI 398: Research Methods in Applied Animal Biology presented their research at MURC 2013.
