Professional Biography

My group continues to investigate the immune responses of horses to various infectious diseases. We are especially interested in infections that occur in the foal, such as Rhodococcus equi, the primary cause of bronchopneumonia in foals less than 6 months of age. I also have an interest in exercise-induced inflammation and its role in exercise conditioning. My laboratory also collaborates with other groups to study the cell-mediated immune responses to various equine pathogens and parasites.
