Meet the guest: As a Ph.D. student at Dr. Stein's lab at the University of Illinois, Pedro Urriola gained experience in swine nutrition research. His graduate course work at the University of Illinois focused on nutritional biochemistry, concepts in animal nutrition, nutrition of dietary fiber and essential fatty acids, regulation of food intake, and lactation biology. His professional long-term goal is an improvement of human well-being through research in agriculture by understanding the regulation of the nutrient metabolism of farm animals. Dr. Urriola is now a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul.
