Our program explores the relationship between the immune system and reproduction. This includes understanding tolerance of the semi-allogeneic fetus, the immune response mechanisms for pregnancy-related diseases, and the development of immunomodulators to improve pregnancy success.  

With improved knowledge on reproductive immunology, inferences can be made into a variety of current topics in equine clinical practice, including but not limited to endometritis, early embryonic loss, endometrial cup degradation, pregnancy maintenance, placentitis, and postpartum involution.
