Series of lectures were presented by invited speakers from experts of different veterinary fields. Among is Dr. Ronnie Domingo from the Bureau of Animal Industry who discussed the updates on Newcastle Disease as well as other priority diseases in the country. Dr. Clarissa Yvonne Domingo updated the students regarding the advances in molecular-based detection of diseases.
