Dr. Adam Moeser has been selected by the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine as the recipient of the 2019 Zoetis Award for Research Excellence.
The Zoetis Award is a nationally recognized honor for a faculty member at each veterinary school in the United States. The award recognizes researchers whose innovative studies have advanced the scientific standing of veterinary medicine.
Moeser is the Matilda R. Wilson Endowed Chair and associate professor for the Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences. He is the director of the Gastrointestinal Stress Biology Laboratory, where his research centers on the pathophysiology of stress-induced gastrointestinal disorders, especially early-life trauma and stress on gastrointestinal neuroimmune development and disease risk across lifespan, mechanisms of sex differences in mast cells and mast cell-associated disease, and impacts of stress and peripheral innate immune activation in brain-gut axis dysfunction. He has received funding from the National Institutes of Health and the United States Department of Agriculture.
The Zoetis award will be presented during the College’s Phi Zeta Research Day on Friday, October 4, 2019.
