University of Kentucky’s Graduate Student Congress awarded one of its three annual Research Awards to Erica Macon, MS, PAS, PhD candidate in the lab of Amanda Adams, PhD, MARSTM Equestrian Fellow and associate professor at the Gluck Equine Research Center.
The $500 award is given each year to support quality graduate and professional student research to continue UK’s reputation as a leading research institution.
According to Macon, the award will help fund her final dissertation, which examines the effects of season and nutrition on insulinemic responses in the insulin dysregulated horse. Her final project investigates the effects of varying concentrations of non-structural carbohydrates on insulinemic responses in the insulin dysregulated horse.
