A delegation from the Research Center for Animal Science (RCAS, assisted by Hiroshima University),
Hiroshima University composed of Prof. T. Obitsu, Assoc. Prof. N. Isobe and Assoc. Prof. M. Nishibori visited Khon Kaen University (KKU) in Thailand from March 7 to 8, 2016.
They had a fruitful meeting discussing collaborative research with key university officials such as Dr. Monchai Duangjinda (Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, KKU), Dr. Virote Pattarajinda (Vice Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture, KKU), Dr. Suporn Katawatin and two other academic staff members. The main theme of collaborative research will focus on producing animal products efficiently under heat stress conditions.
