Research by students in my laboratory is directed towards understanding: 1) how an immune response to a disease challenge influences nutrient needs, growth, reproduction and well-being of birds; 2) the impact of nutrition on immunity and disease resistance; 3) the metabolic adaptations required by carnivorous and nectivorous birds; 4) the role of the immune system in pathology resulting from environmental pollutants.
