Innovad is pleased to announce a 3-year PhD Research Collaboration with Texas A&M, a leading US university, and USDA, the US Department of Agriculture. The primary aim of the research is to ‘Establish a chronic gut inflammation/gut dysbiosis model in chickens’. The research will then aim to ‘incorporate other stressors in order to simulate the field conditions and more importantly evaluate in-feed mitigation strategies’. The research will be conducted by Gabriela Cardoso Dal Pont (PhD candidate at Texas A&M) and we are particularly pleased to work closely with Dr. Yuhua Farnell from Texas A&M and Dr. Mike Kogut from USDA, a world-wide expert on this field!
We anticipate that the new research will lead to new exciting findings that will help the industry address some of the main issues seen in the field.
