Research Interest

He is involved in animal health research in several areas. One of his areas of interest is determining dairy cattle metabolome including plasma, milk, urine, and rumen fluid. High-through put technologies, involving NMR and GC-MS, have been used to identify and measure hundreds and thousands of metabolites present in different body fluids of cattle. Dr. Ametaj also is involved in research activities trying to understand the etiology and pathogenesis of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies in rodent models. His team has developed a new oral vaccine to prevent metabolic and infectious diseases in periparturient dairy cattle. He also has applied probiotics to lower the incidence of uterine infections. Recently, his team has developed a new grain processing technology to improve health and productivity of livestock animals.
