Dr. John Wallace

  Professor at Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health, University of Aberdeen, UK


Research interest:

  Understand the microorganisms and processes, especially on methane emission and fatty acids hydrolysis to contribute to environmental protection and health benefits of the animal products.






Dr. Roderick Ian Mackie 

  Microbiology Professor, Department of Animal Sciences, University of Illinois, USA


Research interest:

  Molecular microbial ecology in the gastrointestinal tract; functional and comparative genomics of gut bacteria; comparative digestive physiology and metabolism.







Dr. Chris McSweeney

   Senior Principal Research Scientist, CSIRO Livestock Industries, Australia


Research interest:

  By integrating knowledge on nutritional toxicology and gut microbial ecology, he attempts to transform gut microbes to produce healthy, safe animal products, while minimizing the impact on the environment.






Dr. Leluo Guan

  Professor in Bovine Functional Genomics with the Department of Agricultural, Food and Nutritional Science, University of Alberta, Canada


Research interest:

  Elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of host-microbial interactions by characterization of bovine gut microbial ecology and its functions using metagenomics/metatranscriptomics approaches, and host gene expression using a functional genomics approach

  Association between gut microbial ecology and feed efficiency, methane emission and gut immunity development in beef and dairy cattle

  Study of the bovine transcriptome, proteome, and non-coding microRNAs and their roles in economically important traits






Dr. Zhongtang Yu

  Associate Professor at College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences The Ohio State University, USA.


Research interest:

  By developing molecular approaches, studying the complex microbial diversity in the rumen, and quantitative examining both the cultured and uncultured microbial populations in the rumen of sheep and cows, he attempted to contribute to produce of healthy, safe animal products and to benefit livestock, humans and the environment.







Dr. Jongsoo Chang

  Professor at Department of Animal Science, Agricultural Economics, Korea National Open University, Korea.


Research interest:

  Metabolome, proteome, trancriptoeme and genome analysis of anaerobic fungi

  Changes of Rumenome in Korean Native Cattle under different feeding conditions

  High quality beef production: from molecule to animal

  Safety and bioavailability of bioactive natural compounds on production animal






Dr. Kobayashi Yasuo

  Professor at Faculty of Agriculture, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan


Research interest:

  Gut microbiology and animal nutrition, especially rumen metabolism and physiology







Dr. Tim McAllister

  Principal Research Scientist, Ruminant Nutrition & Microbiology, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Canada


Research interest:

  Develop strategies for mitigation of fecal shedding of E. coli O157:H7 by cattle, including bacteriophage therapy, passive immunotherapy, electrolyzed oxidizing anode water, management strategies, and dietary intervention.
