Dr. Kelsey Hart Selected as AAEP Foundation Past Presidentsí Research Fellow

The American Association of Equine Practitioners Foundation named Kelsey A. Hart, DVM, DACVIM, as the 2008 AAEP Foundation Past Presidentsí Research Fellow at its 54th Annual Convention Dec. 6-10 in San Diego, Calif.

The $5,000 grant is awarded each year to a student who has excelled in equine research while completing a residency or doctoral program.

Dr. Hart, who is currently enrolled in a combined residency and doctoral program at the University of Georgia, will be introduced to AAEP past presidents during the Presidentís Advisory meeting Dec.7. She will be presented with a check during the Frank J. Milne State-of-the-Art Lecture Dec. 8.

Dr. Hartís research project, Hydrocortisone Replacement Therapy in Septic Foals, examines cases of Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal Axis Dysfunction (HPAA) in septic foals. The data, collected in 2006 and 2007, suggests HPAA occurs in as many as 50 percent of critically ill foals and correlates with decreased survival and disease severity in septic foals.

After completing a three-year residency at the University of Georgia, Dr. Hart achieved a board certification in Large Animal Internal Medicine in June 2008. She anticipates completing her doctorate in physiology in July 2010 and will continue a career in academic research.

Dr. Hart received her veterinary degree from the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. She is the recipient of the 2008-2010 Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award and the 2008 American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine Resident Research Award.

The AAEP Foundation established the Past Presidentsí Research Fellow in 2006. The award is made possible through the monetary contributions of AAEP past presidents.
