This study is part of our fellowship program, established to support early career research scientists. The Fellow will study the role of signaling cells in inflammatory processes associated with postoperative ileus, a life-threating complication of colic surgery.
Researchers will develop an educational training program for Spanish-speaking horse owners in Colombia to improve early recognition of colic, knowledge of risk factors and appropriate treatment when access to veterinary services is limited.
Researchers will study whether changes to gastrointestinal (gut) motility in horses are associated with post-travel colic and use this new information to improve management recommendations for the care of transported horses.
Researchers will study the immune response in the intestine of horses undergoing colic surgery, focusing on a common complication called postoperative ileus.
Researchers will generate a map of the biological networks of gut microbiota and metabolic pathways associated with diabetes mellitus to help inform the discovery of new treatments.
Researchers will study the possible connection between parasitic worm infections, the gut microbial community, and a chronic wasting syndrome in mountain gorillas.
