Dairy calf immunology research

The Abuelo Lab in the College of Veterinary Medicine offers many opportunities to get involved in agricultural research with a focus of dairy calf health.

The Abuelo lab focuses on factors affecting the development of the immune system of newborn calves as a way to decrease disease incidence in this stage. Particularly, I focus on nutritional interventions in the pregnant dam or newborn calf that can enhance the calves' immune responses. The research techniques span from field work on farms to benchtop work employing flow cytometry, cell culture, immunoblotting, PCR, and other techniques as appropriate.

Positions for undergraduate research assistants are regularly open. Please get in contact if you are interested.

Qualifications

The qualifications vary a lot depending on the project. In general students in animal science, biology, etc. with an interest in immunology and agricultural research are encouraged to apply.
