5th Annual USDA-NIFA Symposium: Equine Arteritis Virus Research Outcomes

5th Annual USDA-NIFA Symposium: Equine Arteritis Virus Research Outcomes
Join us to celebrate the fifth and final year of a USDA-NIFA-AFRI grant awarded in 2012 titled "Identification of genetic factors responsible for establishment of equine arteritis virus carrier state in stallions." This year’s symposium will focus on the outcomes of the various research studies undertaken as part of the grant. Several internationally recognized scientists will speak at the symposium who have contributed to research in infectious diseases, immunology, host response to infectious agents and vaccines, and global spread of arthropod-borne diseases of horses and other livestock species.  This symposium is targeted toward our stakeholders; these include equine veterinarians, farm managers, extension staff, equine scientists, equine industry leaders and horse owners, scientists from other departments on campus, faculty, post-docs and graduate students. Seven and a half hours of Continuing Education is pending approval by the Kentucky Board of Veterinary Examiners for veterinarians and veterinary technicians. CE sheets must be signed at the meeting to receive credit. The symposium schedule is below. To download a printable PDF of the schedule, click here.
