"Vitamin D and Bone: Turning an Accident into an Opportunity for Discovery" by Prof. Thomas Crenshaw, Department of Animal Science
Wednesday, January 18, 2017
Crenshaw will discuss the progression of an accidental deletion of vitamin D from the diets of the swine research herd that was later proven to have induced kyphosis (an abnormal spinal curvature), especially if the deficient diets were fed to sows during pregnancy. He and his research team have shown evidence for a strong influence of the maternal diet on bone abnormalities in the offspring.
