Metabolic inflammation and the relationships among energy and calcium metabolism and innate immune function
Dr LeBlanc received his BSc in Animal Science from McGill University in 1992. He attained his PhD in Veterinary Medicine in 1997 and the doctor title of Veterinary Science in 2001, both from the University of Guelph. LeBlanc then went on to work as a dairy veterinarian privately for five years, before joining the faculty at the University of Guelph. He teaches veterinary and agriculture courses and provides clinical farm service. Dr Stephan LeBlanc also serves as the research programme director of animal production systems at the University of Guelph. His focus there lies on transitional dairy cow metabolic and reproductive health management, including field validation of precision technologies. LeBlanc is a former president of the Dairy Cattle Reproduction Council. Additionally, he works as a section editor for the Journal of Dairy Science and has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers himself. The expert on dairy cow metabolism and reproduction has been invited to speak at events in 20 different countries.
At the ISRP 2019, LeBlanc will deliver a speech on “Metabolic inflammation and the relationships among energy and calcium metabolism and innate immune function in dairy cows in the peripartum period” during the session on “Ruminant intermediary metabolism”.
