Glenys's PhD research centred on developing a forensic test to detect synthetic growth hormone given to racehorses. Building on her PhD research, she continues to investigate the pharmacokinetics of equine therapeutics to provide more reliable estimates of drug excretion times in competition horses. She completed 5 months' study leave at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, developing her skills in pharmacokinetic modelling with Professor Ray Boston. She has conducted research into glucose and insulin dynamics in equids; the safety and efficacy of NSAIDs and equine oral calmative preparations and equine behaviour and welfare. Her objective measurement of reactivity in horses has been utilised by Prof Temple Grandin from Colorado State University.
Glenys has worked in the Middle East with both Australian and indigenous sheep in export and sheep dairy feedlots. She is a full accredited Livestock Export Stockperson, completing several sea voyages with sheep and cattle to Kuwait, Oman and Israel. From this work, she is conducting research into managing the physiology of livestock to cope with adverse conditions such as confinement, high temperature and humidity and alterations in diet.She is an external reviewer of efficacy and safety studies for veterinary pharmaceuticals for the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APMVA).
Glenys has taught a vast array of subjects including animal nutrition, equine nutrition, equine exercise physiology, pharmacology, general horse husbandry, scientific writing, and research methods.Her primary teaching roles currently are VSC332 Advanced Animal Nutrition, ASC306 Applied Animal Pharmacology and ASC412 Equine Nutrition.
