A multidisciplinary group
The Groupe de recherche intégré en physiologie et sciences animales (GRIPHA) unites several researchers that merge their expertise to enhance animal performance in connection with animal welfare and sustainable development. GRIPHA also works to ensure the production of safe and healthy food from healthy animals and studies the implications of ethical and regulatory issues raised by scientific advances in the areas of agriculture and food.
GRIPHA’s research approach is centered on the animal, its health and its wellbeing in order to improve livestock productivity and the value of related products. Chemical analysis, genomics, proteomics, epigenetics and phenomics tools are used as part of a unique integrated approach leading to innovation in the sectors of improving genetics in animals, food, nutrition, and breeding practices.
