Researchers Coming Together This Summer for Lameness Research Meeting and Panel

American Association of Equine Practitioners

The American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation (AAEP Foundation) will be hosting a Lameness Research Meeting and Panel on August 1, 2007 at the Fort Collins Marriott in Fort Collins, Colo. This special research meeting is being supported through donations by two major industry partners, Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. and IDEXX Laboratories, Inc., as well as three partner equine foundations: AQHA Foundation, Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation and Morris Animal Foundation. This one-day meeting will take place immediately following the AAEP's annual continuing education meetings – Focus on Lameness and Imaging 2007 and the 15th annual Practice Management Seminar – which will be held July 29 - 31, 2007.

The morning session will be open to AAEP members and other invited participants and guests. Featured will be 13 short abstract presentations from individuals or research groups. These abstracts will focus on new data that has not yet been published, including work-in-progress and future, planned work. The afternoon session will be open only to invited participants and guests and will include a one-hour question and answer session followed by break out sessions involving selected "Blue Ribbon Panel of Lameness Researchers."

"The goal of this meeting is to share collective knowledge, current and future plans among multidisciplinary equine lameness researchers and to help develop a strategic plan to most effectively and economically address important scientific issues regarding diseases that cause lameness," said co-coordinator Nat White, DVM. "We hope to develop a plan for collaboration and identify specific areas in lameness research that are priorities during the next 5 to 10 years."
