Gluck Equine Research Foundation Releases Inaugural Research Report

The University of Kentucky (UK) Gluck Equine Research Foundation Inc. published an inaugural research report in April.

The 56-page Research Report 2009 focuses on the research accomplishments and scientific publications published during the calendar year by the faculty at the UK Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center.

"The Research Report is a scorecard for what the Gluck Equine Research Center faculty accomplished last year," said Ed Squires, PhD, Dipl. ACT, executive director of the Gluck Foundation and director of advancement and industry relations. "This will serve as an important tool to showcase what research is currently being conducted at the Gluck Center to our stakeholders."

Each year, more than 20 faculty members at the Gluck Center are assisted by students, postdoctorals, and visiting scientists in conducting research in six areas: genetics and genomics, infectious diseases and immunology, musculoskeletal science, parasitology, pharmacology/toxicology, and reproductive health. The Research Report is divided by groups and includes each faculty member's educational background, interests, projects, and graduate students. It also includes 2009 research technicians/assistants and visiting scientists.

"Our No. 1 goal at the Gluck Center is focused on improving the health and well-being of the horse," Squires said. "I think the information in the Research Report reflects our accomplishment toward the Gluck Center's mission."

Other information in the Research Report includes Gluck Equine Research Center grants and awards and scientific publications, including books/chapters in books, refereed journal articles, non-refereed journal articles, and seminars and papers presented. Individuals and organizations who donated money to the Gluck Foundation in 2009 are also recognized in the Research Report.
