Researchers will investigate how the immune system impacts the development of the pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction and determine if antioxidant treatments might slow or prevent this hormonal disorder in horses and ponies.
Researchers will determine if being overweight or obese decreases fertility in stallions.
Researchers will investigate how horses are managed when transported by air to optimize their welfare, identifying factors that increase or decrease the risk of health and behavioral problems.
Researchers will investigate if genetic variants can help identify horses at high risk of developing potentially fatal cardiac arrhythmias.
Understanding How Diet Composition Influences Insulin Response in Horses with Equine Metabolic Syndrome
Researchers will study how diet composition affects insulin levels in horses with equine metabolic syndrome as a step toward improving dietary recommendations to control this condition.
Researchers will work to improve an immunotherapy (allergy shots) as a treatment and preventive vaccination for insect-bite hypersensitivity in horses.
