Cornell University Study - Dr. Douglas F. Antczak, Principal Investigator. This study involves ongoing research on equine genetic systems. The principal investigator is researching the role of genetics in horses' development of and immunity to diseases. Consideration of equine leucocyte antigens is an important part of this research.

University of Pennsylvania Study - Dr. Sue McDonnell, Principal Investigator. This project involves basic and applied studies of reproductive physiology and behavior of stallions, including phamacologic manipulation of libido, erection, and ejaculation.

Equine Genetic Mapping Project (Genome)
- Dr. Bhanu P. Chowdhary, Principal Investigator. This project is developing microsatellite markers and the radiation hybrid panel in conjunction with the creation of the equine genetic map.

Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine Study - Dr. Mary Rose Paradis, Principal Investigator. This is a study of the causes of septicemia and premature birth, which can cause respiratory failure in newborn foals. Response to new medical treatments and long term outcome studies are being investigated.

Thoroughbred Breeders' Association Equine Fertility Unit Study - Professor W. R. Allen, Principal Investigator. This is a multifaceted study of maternal recognition in mares, including such issues as feomaternal control of pregnancy, nutritional status before and during gestation, and levels of exercise during pregnancy and their effects on placental and fetal development.

Mare Reproduction Loss Syndrome Study
Dr. Michelle M. LeBlanc, Principal Investigator. This study examines aspects of early fetal losses, delivery of non-viable foals, and other issues of mare reproductive loss syndrome and investigates the mode of transmission of this illness.
