Dr. Hernandez’s research focuses on autocrine/paracrine factors that regulate milk synthesis and secretion, particularly during the transition periods of pregnancy to lactation and lactation to the dry period. The goal of Dr. Hernandez’s research is to elucidate novel methods for improving the ability of dairy cattle to maximize their lactation potential, either by improving the transition to lactation and/or alleviating dry period issues.
