Dr Hue Do

Postdoctoral Researcher

School of Animal and Veterinary Science

Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology

Dr. Hue is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, University of Adelaide. She has extensive knowledge and expertise in animal biology, particularly animal genetics, biochemistry, and microbiology. She is passionate about improving animal survival and performance by targeting in genetics, colostrum, and diets. Her expertise is in various disciplines, including animal biology, physiology, biochemistry, molecular and genomics. She has participated in many projects, including pig, chicken, cattle, and sheep.

Colostrum is essential nutrition for newborns and contains nutrients, growth factors, and various immune components that help neonates resist infection during the first days of their life. During her PhD, she investigated different colostrum components that can transfer to newborn calves after receiving colostrum to improve the calf survival rate.

Currently, Hue is investigating the molecular and biochemical mechanisms in hair follicles. She played a leading role in laboratory works to discover the drug that creates a weakened zone in the wool.
