UI researcher receives funding to study glaucoma in dogs
A University of Iowa vision researcher has been awarded an $87,480 grant to
study genetic markers of glaucoma in dogs, with hopes the research will bring
him closer to identifying markers in humans with the same disease.
The American Kennel Club Canine Health Foundation presented the grant to
Markus Kuehn, Ph.D., assistant professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences at
the UI Roy J. and Lucille A. Carver College of Medicine, for his research with
glaucoma and Bassett hounds.
