Emma Adam, BVetMed (DVM), PhD, MRCVS, DACVIM, DACVS, Assistant Professor, Gluck Equine Research Center, University of Kentucky; Grayson Jockey Club Research Advisory Committee; Horserace Betting Levy Board Veterinary Advisory Committee; AAEP Board; ACVS Research Committee (Chair); ACVIM Resident Credentials Committee; UK Animal Care and Use Committee; FDA-AAEP Stem Cell Task Force; HISA review subcommittee. I am a veterinarian with responsibility for equine stakeholder outreach and liaison, research, continuing professional development, and student engagement in research in my current role at the Gluck Equine Research Center. This role draws heavily from my career-long experience with all aspects of the Thoroughbred industry, which spans roles as stable staff, assistant trainer, and veterinarian in four countries and three continents, as well work as a referral specialist and as a researcher. Designing, developing, and brokering collaborative research projects locally and globally is a pivotal function in my position. I have extensive experience serving grant funding organizations, in advisory roles, and Board service in veterinary associations. Taken together I am fortunate to enjoy a broad perspective on racing matters and a vibrant commitment to ensuring the integrity and sustainability of our sport.
