Equine gut bacteria probed in pilot study

The gut bacteria in horses are being researched at the University of Pennsylvania, in a series of projects that scientists hope will ultimately benefit animal and human health.

Researchers at the university’s School of Veterinary Medicine are leading five pilot projects as part of the wider initiative.

They expect to gain insight into how bacteria, parasites, viruses, and other organisms interact with their animal and human hosts in ways that either maintain health or lead to disease.

The school’s new Center for Host Microbial Interactions is currently funding five pilot projects and each year will invite researchers to submit proposals for funding.

In addition to these pilot projects, the center will provides ongoing support and training for faculty and their labs to carry out analyses of the complex datasets generated by the genomic research.
