Parasitology Research

Our faculty are investigating important parasitic microorganisms such as strongyles, tapeworms, and the protozoan responsible for neurological condition equine protozoal myeloencephalitis.

The Gluck Center has two parasitology research programs. One is led by Dr. Daniel K. Howe and is focused on the protozoan parasite Sarcocystis neurona, which is the cause of Equine Protozoal Myelitis (EPM). The other program is focused on helminth (worm) parasites of horses and is under the direction of Dr. Martin K Nielsen.
