University of Kentucky Gluck Equine Research Center

The University of Kentucky Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center, a UK Ag Equine Program, is the only scientific institute in the United States with nearly all faculty conducting full-time research in equine health and diseases. 

Construction began on the 81,000 square foot facility in 1986 and was completed in 1987. The center is named af­ter the late Maxwell H. Gluck, owner of Elmendorf Farm in Lexington. Maxwell Gluck and his wife, Muriel, gen­erously donated $3 million to the University of Kentucky in 1983 for construction of the research facility on the condition the gift be matched by $3 million from the state and $3 million from members of the horse industry.

The mission of the Gluck Center is scientific discov­ery, education and dissemination of knowledge for the benefit of the health and well-being of horses.

Today, the Gluck Center faculty conducts equine research in six targeted areas: genetics and genomics, infectious diseases and immunology, musculoskeletal science, parasitology, pharmacology/toxicology and reproductive health.
