Research Interest

Ruminant Nutritional Immunology, Dr. Ametaj’s research areas include: 1) studying the etiology and pathogenesis of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies; 2) determining dairy cattle metabolome in four major fluids (milk, plasma, urine, and rumen fluid), 2) developing a new vaccine for prevention of transition cow diseases, 3) using probiotics to prevent uterine infections and improve reproductive and productive performance of dairy cows; 4) studying cow’s health during transitioning from the conventional into the organic system of management; and 5) developing new cereal grain processing technologies to improve health and productivity of ruminant animals.
