Sustainable Animal Environmental Science


Our laboratory is interested in relationship between animals, microorganisms and environment. Many environmental factors in burns, pasture, wild animals and microorganisms should be controlled for producing healthy animals. Manure, wastewater and zoonotic microorganisms should be properly treated for the protection of human life and natural environment.
Our goal of research and education is the production of healthy animals and the creation of the harmonization between animal production and environment.
