CVM Faculty Awarded Funding for Innovative Therapy ResearchTwo projects from NC State College of Veterinary Medicine researchers involving new chronic pain therapies for both animals and humans have received additional funding from the NC Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute. Studies from Brian Gilger, professor of ophthalmology, and Lauren Schnabel, assistant professor of equine orthopedic surgery, are among 15 pilot projects selected for
Early Success Shown in Alternative Therapy for Equine Eye DiseaseAn innovative stem cell therapy first used at the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine shows strong promise in treating a chronic equine eye disease. In a new proof-of-concept study, stem cells were injected under the conjunctiva, the membrane covering the front of the eye, of four horses not responding well to the usual treatment
