Students visit ILRI-Kampala

A group of researchers and graduate students from Iowa State University, North Carolina State University and the University of Delaware, working on poultry genomics visited the ILRI Office in Kampala on 27 October 2012. The group was led by Dr. Max Rothschild, Director of the Center for Integrated Animal Genomics, and accompanied by Mr. Gideon Ndiope, Pig Specialist in VEDCO (Volunteer Efforts for Development Concerns), an Ugandan NGO, which is partnering with the Smallholder Pig Value Chains Development project in Uganda.

The group was received by Kristina Rosel and Danilo Pezo, who introduced the visitors to the research for development (R4D) work that ILRI is developing in Uganda. Dr. Rothschild expressed the interest of Iowa State University to collaborate with ILRI for the work in pig/pork value chains in Uganda.
