In "Dairy Nutrition" laboratory, we are interested to gain a better understanding of interactions between nutrient metabolism and inflammation. In this context, we are interested in research topics such as mastitis, retinol-binding protein (RBP), lipids and inflammatory mediators, biology of transition cows, lactation and milk synthesis, and role of milk components and dairy products in the human health. For more detailed description of our research program, please click on the link below (Dairy Nutrition Laboratory).
Dairy Nutrition Laboratory
