𝗠𝗲𝗲𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗴𝘂𝗲𝘀𝘁: As a Ph.D. student in Dr. Stein's lab at the University of Illinois, Pedro Urriola gained experience in research on swine nutrition. His graduate course work at Illinois focused on nutritional biochemistry, regulation of metabolism, microbial biochemistry, concepts in animal nutrition, nutrition of dietary fiber and essential fatty acids, regulation of food intake, and lactation biology. His professional goal, long term, is improvement of human well-being through research in Agriculture by understanding the regulation of 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.
