Searching for a Genetic Defect Responsible for Central Nervous System Disease
This fellowship training grant investigates potential genetic and environmental causes for two of the most common equine brain and spinal cord diseases—neuroaxonal dystrophy and equine degenerative myeloencephalopathy. Results could lead to more accurate diagnostic tools and allow breeders to evaluate the status of their animals before breeding. In addition, this fellowship will facilitate the training of a veterinary scientist, addressing a critical need in veterinary medical research.
