Researchers will investigate the potential impact and transmission of a blood bacteria in the critically endangered Darwin's fox.
Researchers will use genetic fingerprinting methods to track and help prevent serious antibiotic-resistant staph infection outbreaks in dogs and cats.
Researchers will identify new therapy targets for malignant mast cell tumors, acommon and aggressive cancer in dogs.
Researchers will identify horse breeds most susceptible to Salmonella and determine which antibiotics would provide the greatest benefit to stricken animals.
Researchers will search for genetic markers associated with an increased risk for equine metabolic syndrome, a disorder in horses characterized by insulin resistance, obesity and susceptibility to laminitis.
As part of a larger research project (D17EQ-019), the research fellow will analyze metabolic products to help prioritize genetic regions of interest in the ongoing search for markers associated with an increased risk of equine metabolic syndrome in horses.
Researchers will investigate a new and promising treatment for oral squamous cell carcinoma, the most common oral cancer in cats.
Researchers will study a new, long-term method to reduce botfly infestations in Ridgway's hawk nests, a direct cause of high nestling mortality in this species.
Researchers will identify genetic variations in different bacterial strains of tuberculosis affecting wildlife, an important first step toward developing new treatments formultiple species.
Researchers will explore risk factors for cardiomyopathy, a chronic heart condition and an important cause of mortality in free-ranging southern sea otters.
