Dr. Niel Karrow’s research interests focus on immunoregulation, immunotoxicology, and immunogenetics of livestock species. This includes identifying genetic markers associated with ruminant inflammatory diseases such as mastitis and Johne's disease; assessing the effects of maternal stress on genetic programming of the fetal neuroendocrine-immune system and the potential for nutritional intervention; promoting healthy neonatal gut development through the use of probiotics; and assessing the immunotoxicity of bacterial and fungal toxin mixtures.
