David Horohov is Interim Director, Gluck Equine Research Center, at the University of Kentucky. He received his PhD in Immunology from the University of Tennessee. His research program focuses on the identification and characterization of equine cytokines and their role in protective and pathologic immune responses. Dr. Horohov’s research group has cloned, sequenced and expressed a number of cytokine genes from the horse and developed assays for their detection. These assays have been used to better characterize the protective immune responses of horses to bacterial, viral and parasitic infections, as well as the pathologic response in autoimmune and allergic diseases.
