Step Inside the Adams Lab

Meet Dr. Adams, her colleagues, and the students who work in the lab and conduct research; learn about the main areas of study; and get to know the most important team members: the horses!

Areas of Study

The Adams lab has four main research focuses: old horse health and wellness, equine metabolic syndrome, pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction (formerly referred to as equine Cushing's disease), and stress in horses.  Learn about the conditions, how they impact horses, and how the lab is working to understand them better to help horses stay healthy and happy.

Meet the People

From undergrad students to lab directors, get to know the team that conducts studies, cares for the research herds, and keeps the lab running smoothly.
