Penn State Equine Research Team

Our team is made up of students and others interested in using the scientific method to answer questions regarding the health and performance of the horse.

The Penn State Equine Research Team (PSERT) is an official student organization at Penn State.  We welcome all students, and hope that if you have any interest you will contact us or attend one of our meetings to find out more.

The Objectives of PSERT are:

  • To give undergraduate students an opportunity to experience equine research
  • Assist undergraduate students in comprehending the “real world” of equine research.
  • Provide a setting for informal and enlightening discussion of equine science.
