Prof. Dr André Chwalibog
Research activities have been devoted to several aspects of nutrition and physiology. Major activities have concerned energy and protein metabolism in different animal species and humans. These include energy and nutrient metabolism under different genetic and environmental conditions, during growth, reproduction and lactation; Evaluation of energy and protein utilization and requirements; Feed evaluation; Mathematical models of nutrient and energy metabolism; Substrate oxidation and utilization for gluconeogenesis, lipogenesis and protein turnover; Metabolic programming; Application of nanotechnology in nutrition and tumour therapy. Investigations have been performed at cellular, tissue and whole body levels, both in vitro and in vivo. Major methods have been nutrient and energy balances, indirect calorimetry, stable isotopes, and histological, microscopic, immunological and molecular techniques.
