PhD project: Fat emulsifiers to improve neurocognitive development in a preterm piglet model
In my PhD project I am investigating how different fat emulsifiers in milk affect neonatal health and development using a preterm pig model. The main focus area is neurocognitive development with secondary endpoints in growth, immunity, gut maturation/health/function.

Medical and surgical experimental animal work, primarily with pigs. This includes working with a preterm pig model with a nutritional and organ developmental focus, a pig model of implant-associated osteomyelitis and a pig model of forensic bruising.
In vivo behavioural testing such as open-field, novel object recognition and spatial plus maze
Ex vivo analyses such as gross pathology, histopathology, immunohistochemistry, conventional microbiology and imaging
Forenisc pathological casework
