Research Project: IN VIVO MANIPULATION OF MAMMARY STEM CELLS TO IMPROVE MILK PRODUCTION EFFICIENCY

Location: Bovine Functional Genomics

Project Number: 1245-32000-092-01
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Feb 15, 2008
End Date: Feb 14, 2013

Objective:
Develop strategies that promote cell proliferation and replacement in the bovine mammary gland, in order to increase lactational productivity and efficiency.

Approach:
We propose to accomplish the research objective by utilizing and extending current knowledge of mammary stem cell biology. Our specific aims are to manipulate mammary stem cell activity to enhance the growth of mammary epithelium and promote the replacement of senescent cells.
