Veterinary student Olivia Walker from the Lincoln Memorial University School of Veterinary Medicine, a program affiliated with the University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Center and Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory, was recently awarded the Nandi Scholarship by the American Society for Theriogenology. The scholarship recognizes a veterinary student in their final year who shows superior potential to impact the field of reproduction (theriogenology).


Walker has spent the last three summers as a research intern with Carleigh Fedorka, PhD, postdoctoral scholar at the Gluck Center, where she collaborated on numerous projects with the reproduction group and earned status as co-author on five scientific articles. She will be presented the award, along with $10,000, at the annual theriogenology conference in July.
