Strategic Focus

This group aims to consolidate the doctorate and master's programs in Animal Sciences at Universidad de Antioquia in order to have professionals with the ability to apply the acquired knowledge in the agricultural sector. Our goal is to create a school of agrarian thought combining the philosophy and technology of the sector for its development. We encourage research awareness in undergraduate and graduate students through a direct link to the projects and works carried out in the group, in association with the official and private sectors, according to the goals and proposals associated with the different productive chain activities involved.

Research Areas and Topics

  • Aquaculture.
  • Nutrition of monogastrics.
  • Nutrition of ruminants.
  • Agroindustrial systems.
  • Sustainable animal production systems.
  • Soils and forage species.
