Andres Contreras received his DMV from Universidad Nacional de Colombia. At Michigan State University, he completed the Large Dairy Internship Program, a master’s degree in mastitis and milk quality, and a PhD in Comparative Medicine and Integrative Biology. His postdoctoral training was at Wayne State University and focused on the lipolysis- induced white adipose tissue remodeling process. Dr. Contreras’ research program is focused on the adaptations of adipose tissue to disease and negative energy balance and its implications to dairy cattle health during the periparturient period.
