Drawing on multi-disciplinary expertise, the Center seeks to improve animal agriculture while mitigating climate and ecological impacts.
A new method developed by Katrin Hinrichs and colleagues in the School of Veterinary Medicine resulted in the birth of three healthy foals. The technique opens the door to new insights in the basic biology of horse reproduction.
Penn Vet have uncovered a detailed mechanism by which tumors can skirt both the immune system and cancer therapies that leverage its power.
Mirroring a finding in humans, diabetes diagnoses in dogs were more common in colder areas of the U.S. and during winter, according to a new study led by Penn Vet researchers.
Dean Andrew M. Hoffman has named Dr. Igor Brodsky, an internationally recognized microbiologist, the inaugural Robert R. Marshak Professor.
A multi-institutional effort led by researchers at Penn Vet is taking steps to develop an effective technique to regenerate photoreceptors cells and restore sight in people with vision disorders.
Awards represent the Institute for Infectious and Zoonotic Diseases’ long-term vision of supporting research that advances understanding of infectious diseases.
The postdoctoral fellowship will support scientists conducting research related to the biology of infectious disease.
Principal investigator Dipti Pitta, MVSc, PhD, receives grant from the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture to build upon pioneering research on rumen microbiota and nutrient utilization.
