Alltech, a global leader in animal health and nutrition, has received a record number of applicants to its Young Scientist Program - 842 students have already submitted applications globally with nearly two months of registration remaining.
"In a year of gloom and doom in the world economy, it is thrilling for us to see so many young minds interested in our industry," said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. "The Alltech Young Scientist Program is an incredible venue for undergraduate and graduate students to involve themselves professionally in animal science on a global level."
The winners of the undergraduate and graduate Young Scientist Awards will be announced during Alltech's 25th International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium May 17 - 20, 2009.
