Champaign, IL (May 19, 2021)—The American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA) is pleased to announce Victoria Favorit as the 2021 recipient of the ADSA Foundation Graduate Student Literature Review Award: Production Division (MS). Favorit will be recognized during the virtual ADSA Annual Meeting.
The ADSA Foundation Graduate Student Literature Review Award: Production Division (MS) was created to recognize graduate students who have composed in-depth and extensive literature reviews in their thesis or dissertation and allow for these papers to be published in the Journal of Dairy Science® as review papers, making them available as references for citations in original research papers. The winner must be a graduate student (or within six months of graduation) at the time of the article submission to the Journal of Dairy Science. The article must be no more than 30 double-spaced pages, including references and graphs, have no more than 75 references, and be focused on a topic in dairy science.
Victoria Favorit is a graduate student at the University of Idaho studying lactation physiology with Amy Skibiel. She completed her bachelor of science degree in animal science at the University of Florida. Her research focus is mitochondrial function in extramammary tissues, skeletal muscle, and liver of dairy cattle across lactation. A key feature of her research is the use of respiratory control ratios to measure mitochondrial coupling efficiency. Assessing mitochondrial function at early, peak, and late time points provides insight into temporal changes in function that may be crucial in offsetting the incidence of metabolic disease.
It is with great pleasure that ADSA and the ADSA Foundation present Victoria Favorit with the 2021 ADSA Foundation Graduate Student Literature Review Award: Production Division (MS).
