Abstract
Endocrine, immune, nervous and enzyme systems regulate endogenous processes in healthy and sick animals. The understanding of their mechanisms is very important for the development of basal and applied knowledge in veterinary medicine as well as for the invention of new therapies. The aim of the programme is to reveal some new responses in physiological and pathological situations in animals, using the clinical and basal studies. Investigations comprise: sexual dimorphism, receptor expression, development and function of locomotory system, physiological properties of autohtonous breeds, microcystins and the embryonal development, connections between endocrine and immune systems in some animal diseases.
Significance for science
The main scope of the research group is to carry out cutting-edge basic research, fundamental for the advancement of science and for planning/performing the applied research. The results obtained contribute to the advancement of veterinary medicine and biomedical field. They are also successfully implemented into daily use i.e. optimization/development of diagnostic and prognostic markers as well as therapeutic methods and agents. In view of reduction of experimental animals use, evaluation and use of animal models of naturally occurring diseases (clinical cases) is of utmost importance. This data are also of great value in comparative medicine. Contemporary state of the research topics enables us to participate in the international research projects, scientific networking with top scientists and research institutions as well as leading pharmaceutical companies. The results of this successful international collaboration are high-profile joint publications, organization of international scientific meetings, the ability to translate basic science into practice and the possibility to exchange postgraduate students.
Significance for the country
High quality research published in major international scientific journals and presented at the international scientific and professional meetings contributes to the advancement of veterinary profession and promotion of Slovenia. Members of the research program group are involved in the university graduate and postgraduate study programs as lecturers and supervisors of PhD and graduate students. In this way, they contribute to the quality and improvement of the teaching process and to the popularization of research work among graduate students. Research program group also has the ability to implement science into laboratory and clinical practice as evident from the number of applied projects that take place outside the funding scheme of Slovenian Research Agency i.e. implementation of target research and development projects and regulated tasks for the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food and other contract work for customers, particularly in the area of reproduction of domestic animals. Improvement of existing or development of new diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic approaches increase the competency of laboratory testing and competitiveness of our clinical services and contribute to animal welfare. Development of novel diagnostic methods and biotechnology protocols has the potential of patent proposals. Data about factors influencing perioperative complications development can be used in development of new protocols for inpatients care that can benefit veterinary as well as human patients. Knowledge obtained can also serve as a basis for guidelines preparation on animal selection towards specific genotypes, that can be used in breeding programs and action plans in case of disease breakout (e.g. transmissible spongiform encephalopathies). One of the cornerstones in advancement of agriculture in EU is food safety. Results of our selected studies will be used to prepare guidelines on future dairy industry development in Slovenia to ensure safety of milk and dairy products focused on more conventional dairy. Similarly, data on biologic characteristics of porcine muscle fibers, and specifically heavy miosyn chain-based hyperthrophy potential of muscle fibers that affect meat quality, may be used to better plan breeding programs towards selected breeds of pigs that can be raised for specific purposes. This may prove the autochthonous pig breed “krškopoljski prašič” to be of superior quality for selected purposes. Additionally, such breed selection is important in raising public awareness about autochthonous breeds and environment protection.
