General ItemField evaluation of a rapid, mobile, novel sequencing technology for the detection of Equine Herpesvirus-1 in equine nasal secretions
Purpose: To evaluate a novel, DNA sequencing modality for diagnosing Equine herpesvirus-1 via nasal swab samples in outbreak scenarios and to further characterize the molecular epidemiology of the virus.
General ItemThe Role of Infection and Immunity in Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM)
Purpose: To understand more about how EPM affects the immune system of horses, and discover how we might improve the diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
General ItemIdentification of a genetic predisposition for Equine Protozoal Myeloencephalitis (EPM) susceptibility and associated gene dysregulation in clinically affected horses
Purpose: To determine if there is an underlying genetic predisposition for horses that develop EPM, including chronically affected horses who either fail to respond to treatment or suffer recurrent disease after ceasing treatment.
