Equine Exercise Physiology Lab
The Equine Exercise Physiology Laboratory is a world-class facility, one of only two such laboratories not associated with a veterinary college in the United States.
The Equine Exercise Physiology Laboratory is an extremely popular location on the G.H. Cook Campus of Rutgers University primarily because of the high-speed equine treadmill which became operational in April 1995. Although it provides a unique and fascinating visual, the equine treadmill is used specifically for scientific research.
In addition to facilitating research, the “Treadmill Laboratory” serves as an interactive teaching environment. Each semester undergraduate students earn credit towards graduation by participating in research and through hands-on courses that develop sound scientific research techniques. The Equine Science Center offers several tour dates throughout the year for interested groups to witness treadmill demonstrations and simulated research experiments.
