报告人简介

Eric Wong, professor of animal and poultry sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciencesat Virginia Tech, was reappointed as the John W. Hancock Professor of Animal and Poultry Sciences by the Virginia Tech Board of Visitors.
The John W. Hancock Jr. Professorship in Animal Science was created by and is named for an alumnus who earned his bachelor’s degree in mining engineering from Virginia Tech in 1925 and founded the Roanoke Electric Steel Corporation.
Education:
      Ph.D., Biology, 1981, University of California, San Diego
      B.S., Biology, 1976, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Research:
      The transport of nutrients (e.g., amino acids, peptides and sugars) across the intestinal epithelia is mediated by membrane bound transporter proteins, which play an important role in regulating growth. In particular, we are interested in the peptide transporter, PepT1, which transports di- and tripeptides.  We have found that developmental age and dietary treatment can alter expression of the chicken PepT1 gene.  Currently, we are examining the expression profiles of PepT1 and other nutrient transporters in the yolk sac membrane and the intestine during embryonic development.
