We are kicking off the new season of Cornell’s Equine Seminar Series with a fascinating presentation by Doug Antczak, VMD, PhD, the Dorothy Havemeyer McConville Professor of Equine Medicine at the Baker Institute for Animal Health. This seminar will explain the current understanding of the relationship between breeds and review some of the new data on inherited disease and genetic susceptibility to disease. This installment of the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Equine Seminar Series will be held on Tuesday, February 15 from 6–7 p.m. EST via Zoom.

Antczak earned a Bachelor of Arts degree at Cornell University in 1969 and completed a degree in veterinary medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 1973. Afterwards, Antczak conducted post-graduate research in England as a Thouron Scholar, and he was awarded a PhD from Cambridge University in 1978. Since 1979, he has been on the scientific staff of the Baker Institute. In 1992, Antczak was appointed the Dorothy Havemeyer McConville Professor of Equine Medicine and, in 1994, Director of the Baker Institute for Animal Health, a post he held for 15 years. During his career Antczak has conducted research in equine immunology, genetics and reproduction, and he has collaborated widely with scientists in each of these disciplines. Since 1995, Antczak has been a principal participant in the international Horse Genome Project.

The Cornell Equine Seminar Series is presented by the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine’s Equine Hospital, the New York State 4-H Horse Program and Cornell Cooperative Extension. Held monthly, equine experts present on important equine health and management topics. The event is free and open to the public.
