Are you weighing diet and nutrition appropriately when designing microbiome and gut health research studies?
Join us to discuss how rodent model diets shape experimental outcomes, with a particular focus on microbiome and gut health.
Dr. Pellizzon received his Bachelor of Science degree from Michigan State University in Nutritional Sciences and a Master of Science and PhD in Nutrition and Food Science at Wayne State University, where he studied the effects nutritional manipulation on obesity, metabolism, and atherosclerosis risk in rodent models.
In his Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Pellizzon investigated the effect of nutrient manipulation, including dietary fat sources, on atherosclerosis risk in mouse models. Throughout his studies, Mike enjoyed communicating with and sometimes challenging colleagues about which diets they were using to achieve their research goals.
This experience lead naturally to his current position as Senior Scientist at Research Diets Inc., where for the past twelve years he has continued to enjoy having conversations with the research community and formulating diets.
