Equine Research at Purdue

The Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine strives to advance human and animal medicine through cutting edge research.  Research projects carried out by equine faculty are funded by multiple foundations, industry groups and internal university funds.  Foundations that fund projects include the American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS), American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM), American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA), American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP), United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation and Morris Animal Foundation. Industry partners that fund projects vary from pharmaceutical to medical device and biotechnology companies. The Purdue College of Veterinary Medicine and veterinary medical community is grateful for the generous support shown by these groups. Advancements are made every year, further benefiting the equine industry and it's athletes.
