Researchers will investigate differences in mast cell subtypes found in the airways of heathy and asthmatic horses to help identify better diagnostic and treatment strategies for equine asthma.
Researchers will investigate a new strategy to improve treatment of persistent joint infections that cause inflammation and osteoarthritis in horses.
Researchers will manipulate the expression of immune markers on stem cells to develop safer and more effective therapies for horses with musculoskeletal injuries.
Researchers will investigate if vaccinating mares will protect their newborn foals against pneumonia caused by the bacterium Rhodococcus equi.
Researchers will study the genetic causes of health problems in grey-colored alpacas, critical steps toward the development of a genetic screening test to improve the overall health of these animals.
Researchers will investigate how diet influences a horse's gut bacteria (microbiome) and metabolism (metabolome) and impacts insulin, key information to understanding how to feed horses at risk for laminitis.
