Dr. Guillermo (Memo) Tellez received a DVM in 1986 and an MS Degree in Avian Pathology in 1989 at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) that was followed by a PhD in Veterinary Microbiology in 1992 at Texas A&M University. After receiving his PhD, he returned to UNAM and served as Head of the Department of Avian Medicine (College of Veterinary Medicine, UNAM) from 1994 to 2001. During that time, he was nominated and become a member of the Mexican Veterinary Academy and recognized as National Researcher Level 3 by the National Research Council of Mexico. In 1997, Tellez was President of the Mexican Poultry Science Asociation (ANECA).
In 2001, Dr. Tellez joined the faculty first on sabbatical leave and then following appointment as a Research Professor at the University of Arkansas, Center of Excellence for Poultry Science. The Poultry Health Laboratory Mission is to identify probiotic candidates for poultry that can displace Salmonella and other enteric pathogens which have colonized the gastrointestinal tract of chicks and poults. While at the University of Arkansas, Tellez has worked toward the identification of probiotic candidates for poultry uses. Extensive research resulted in the development of FloraMax-B11®, a defined lactic acid bacteria base probiotic culture that has demonstrated accelerated development of normal microflora in chickens and turkeys, providing increased resistance to Salmonella spp., reduce idiopathic diarrhea, increased performance and reduced costs of production. Dr. Tellez was also instrumental in the development of methods to control necrotic enteritis and cellulitis in turkeys.
