Watch on-demand now to learn how biotic and abiotic stress factors in animal production can trigger chronic inflammation and the in vivo anti-inﬂammatory properties of a complex feed additive technologies.
Animal gut health is crucial to livestock performance and is tied to functionality. Learn about the role of gut health and chronic, low-grade inflammation in animal health outcomes. This includes strategies for controlling inflammation and the financial impact. Featured speakers will include Dr. Michael Kogut, Research Microbiologist, USDA-ARS, and Dr. Christos Gougoulias, Head of Innovation, Innovad SA.
WHAT YOU’LL LEARN:
1. How poultry gut inflammation is a physiological (normal) response to maintain homeostasis and restore functionality
2. What is the distinction between acute and chronic inflammation
3. How inflammation impacts livestock production
4. Are pro- or anti-inflammatory focused products or strategies, in isolation, the cure to chronic inflammation and its consequences?
This webinar is sponsored by Innovad and is presented by WATT Global Media, WATTAgNet, and FeedStrategy.com.
Dr. Michael Kogut, Research Microbiologist at USDA-ARS
Dr. Kogut is a Research Microbiologist and Lead Scientist within the Food and Feed Safety research Unit at the United States Department of Agriculture Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS). After graduating as a master in Veterinary Science at The Pennsylvania State University, he went on to gain his Ph.D. in Poultry Science from the University of Georgia. His research is centered on alternatives to antibiotics to control disease and increase production; specifically the development of cost-effective, pre-harvest immunological interventions to improve gut health.
Dr. Christos Gougoulias, Head of Innovation at Innovad SA.
After receiving his BSc degree in Food Science & Technology at Thessaloniki, Greece, Christos started as a Business Development Manager at Chr-Hansen A/S at the Greek Headquarters. He received his MSc degree in Food Biotechnology from the University of Reading (UK) in 2003 and fulfilled his PhD in Food and Human Gut Microbiology (probiotics) in 2007. He became a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the University of Reading (UK) and researched soil microbial ecology. He continued his research at Syngenta UK where he developed novel regulatory lab test systems for the evaluation of dissipation of pesticides. In 2015, he became a Senior Business Development Manager at APHA Scientific, the commercial arm of the Animal & Plant Health Agency, UK and developed a wide range of Products and Services to the veterinary world. Nowadays, he works as Head of Innovation within Innovad SA, an animal feed additives manufacturer. Leading the development and promotion of novel nutraceutical solutions for livestock.
