Minipigs at ILVO: A translational model to study nutrition and health

The interaction between nutrition, gut health and chronic disease is becoming increasingly clear

Translational models in (mini)pigs are relevant pre-clinical tools to investigate the relationship between diet and (intestinal) health.

With this poster, ILVO would like to present its expertise and facilities related to the use of (mini)pigs as translational models for human nutrition research.
