Danyel Bueno Dalto, Ph.D.

Scientific Researcher, PRP

Studying the physiology of vitamins and microminerals absorption at the gastrointesitnal levels;
Studying the metabolic homeostasis of vitamins and microminerals and developing nutritional strategies for pre- and post- weaned piglets that optimize the use of these nutrients aiming to enhance pigs health and robustness, maximize performance, and reduce the environmental impacts of heavy metals in pig manure;
Studying the metabolic homeostasis and interactions between vitamins and microminerals in pre-pubertal and gestation sows aiming to improve ovulation and embryo quality, and reduce within-litter variation.
