Cornell Virtual Seminar: Tips For Keeping Your Horse Sound

Dr. Michelle Delco, assistant research professor and equine surgery specialist at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, will offer advice for horse owners on preventing equine lameness on Tuesday, June 15 from 6 to 7 p.m. EST via Zoom.

A “sound horse” is a term used to refer to the overall health of the animal. A “sound horse” is one with no lameness, illness or injury. Key actions to achieve and sustain equine soundness will be presented during the seminar.

Delco received her degree from Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2002. After completing a residency in Equine Surgery at the University of California, Davis, to become a board-certified surgeon, Delco served as an Assistant Professor of Equine Surgery at Kansas State University.

In 2008, she joined a private equine referral practice near Seattle, Washington, where her primary focus was orthopedic surgery and the diagnosis and treatment of complicated sports injuries in equine athletes.

In 2012, Delco returned to Cornell University to pursue her PhD, which she completed in 2016. She is currently an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Clinical Sciences and serves as a large animal surgeon at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals and Cornell Ruffian Equine Specialists in Elmont, New York.

Her research focuses on understanding how joint injury leads to arthritis in horses and humans. Specifically, she is investigating mitochondria, the energy-producing centers of the cell, as a link between cartilage trauma and osteoarthritis. Her group is also interested in understanding the role of mitochondrial function in tissue repair and regenerative medicine. The goal of her research is to develop new treatment strategies to prevent irreversible joint disease and chronic pain in equine and human patients who suffer orthopedic injuries.
