The sixth in a series of fortnightly webinars aimed at Irish pig producers will focus on "Supplementary milk in the farrowing room" with Charlotte Lauridsen.
Prof. Lauridsen received her M.Sc. in Animal Nutrition from the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University in Frederiksberg, Denmark, in 1994, and her Ph.D. in Food Chemistry in 1998.
In 2018, she became professor in nutritional immunology at the Department of Animal Science at Aarhus University. From 2020, she was appointed as professor in Experimental Nutrition at the Faculty of Health at Aalborg University. The main area of her work is nutrition research in relation to gastrointestinal health and diseases in human and pigs.
Her primary areas of research include nutritional immunology and infection biology, animal models for human, basic and applied lipid nutrition, vitamins and antioxidants and fatty acids, eicosanoids and inflammatory markers.
She is currently project leader of a study entitled Born2Gut, in which the effect of supplemental milk for suckling piglets is investigated with the aim to reduce antibiotic use via improved gut health.
