Animal and Food Sciences
Research Interests:
1. Understanding how inflammation influences resistance to
infectious diseases;
2. Understanding how energy and protein intakes influence the
response to and recovery from infectious disease.
Proposed Collaboration:
My lab uses various animal infectious disease models to test
hypotheses. Potential research hypotheses include:
1. Does suppressing inflammation in obese individuals improve
resistance to infectious disease;
2. Does neonatal energy and protein nutrition influence an
animal’s life cycle energy metabolism.
