Some quotes:

  • All those steps provided me with experience in some of the basic areas in infectious diseases research, such as epidemiological methods and molecular biology, which will be very useful tools for my future work in bovine infectious diseases” (Larissa Condaz, 2011);
  • “Finally, I am really happy and satisfied with what I did and what I reached. For that I would like to thank you and thank GRMF for financial and moral support (Nimer Kkraim, 2008);
  • “I am convinced that I will benefit from the experience due to the GRMF Award” (Vitaly Dubinsky, 2006);
  • “I am glad to tell you that I have successfully completed my three months period at QMPS Cornell University. This was a great learning experience for me. I have visited several farms of New York with QMPS veterinarians and field technicians. I learned about the best possible approach towards mastitis (laboratory procedures for the identification of microorganisms, milking procedures, teat dips, and milking systems). I attended the NEDPA (Northeast Dairy Producers Association) conference in Syracuse. I have got this opportunity to work with QMPS at Cornell university only due to the GRMF Grant.  I will use this knowledge to help dairy farmers in India” (Shailesh Madane, 2012)
