Nutrigenomics is research focusing on identifying and understanding molecular-level interaction between nutrients and other dietary bioactives with the genome. By understanding how nutrients interact with the genome, better dietary regimens may be designed or novel treatment of important diseases may be addressed.
The Center for Mastitis Research conducts innovative mastitis research aimed at developing practical dairy herd preventive medicine programs, safe and effective animal health products, and improved management techniques for the dairy industry.
Our mission is to promote interdisciplinary research and education in the areas of Immunology and Infectious Diseases.
The Center was formed in 1997 to develop and expand programs in toxicology and carcinogenesis at Penn State. Over the past ten years the Center has fostered the development of graduate and undergraduate programs in toxicology.
Part of Animal Diagnostic Laboratory, the Center is the largest repository for E. coli strains in America. It holds more than 70,000 strains collected over the last 50 years from animals, humans, birds and environment.
