ST. LOUIS, July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novus is excited to participate in the 102nd annual Poultry Science Association (PSA) meeting on July 22-25, 2013 in San Diego, California. This event will bring together educators, scientists, administrators and producers from different parts of the world to discuss relevant and current topics for the global poultry industry.
"Novus is dedicated to developing poultry health and nutrition solutions based on strong and innovative science," stated Dr. Chris D. Knight, Sr. Vice President, Research & Development at Novus. "We're proud of the work that the Novus research scientists and collaborators will be presenting at this year's meeting. It is very important to us to continually create solutions that will help producers around the world be more efficient."
In addition to sponsoring the opening reception which begins at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, July 22nd, Novus will be presenting its latest research and findings on topics relevant to the poultry industry through a series of four oral abstract presentations and two poster presentations. As in past years, Novus will be presenting two awards, Novus Outstanding Scholar Award and Novus Outstanding Teacher Award. The recipients of each award are selected based on their exceptional work in and outside the classroom, along with their efforts and commitment to the poultry industry.
To commemorate the memory of Dr. Andrew Geisen and the body of work he contributed throughout his career to both the poultry industry and as a valued member of the Novus International team, PSA has created the Andrew Geisen Memorial Scholarship. This ongoing special scholarship award will be presented to deserving students to help pay for their graduate school fellowships.
