My primary and active research areas involve diseases and injuries that occur at the human-animal interface. These often reflect new and emerging issues (i.e. C. difficile, MRSA) or evolving disciplines such as veterinary infection prevention in the clinic/hospital setting.

Morphological and MRI studies of osteoarthritis and osteochondrosis.

Anatomic pathology as it relates to infectious diseases, agriculture, public health and biomedical research

 PUB/CVM/VMC/Thumbnail Gebhart
Connie Gebhart

Main focus is diagnostic bacteriology and development/evaluation of diagnostic tests. Research involves enteric diseases of animals caused by bacteria, especially Lawsonia, Brachyspira, and Campylobacter species

Our research focuses on the genetic basis and functional analysis of naturally occurring neuromuscular and metabolic disease in horses. Our work includes both diseases that are both clinically and economically important in the horse, as well as the use of the horse as a biomedical model.

Jim Mickelson

I am a major contributor to the international equine genome mapping effort and study the molecular and genetic basis of metabolic, neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disease in dogs and horses. I also collaborate on the identification of genomic signatures of selection for performance traits and the functional underlying alleles in the horse.

Dr. Trumble in collaboration with Dr. Murray Brown at the University of Florida, established the Collaborative and Comparative Orthopedic Biomarker Research lab that focuses on the use of direct and indirect biomarkers of osteoarthritis in horses. The goal of this collaborative effort is to be able to use biomarkers to diagnose osteoarthritis in its early stages when treatment may have an effect and possibly prevent further progression in both horses and humans.
