She joined the Iowa State University Animal Science Faculty in January 2016, and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2022.

She strives to solve current industry issues and anticipate future industry needs using unique approaches.
Dr. Karen Grogan
Dr. Karen Grogan received her undergraduate degree and DVM from North Carolina State University, and completed the MAM at the University of Georgia after deciding poultry medicine would be her focus. She held numerous veterinary positions in the poultry industry – including roles in technical service and consulting. But the call of academia and service to the GA poultry industry has prompted her to return full-time as a Clinical Associate Professor at PDRC in 2017. She currently serves as Graduate Coordinator for the MAM and MAHM programs, too.
Dr. Doug Korver
Dr. Doug Korver received a Ph. D. in nutrition from the University of California, Davis, and joined the University of Alberta in 1997. In addition to practical research on feedstuff quality and dietary supplement evaluation in poultry diets, Doug’s work focuses on nutrition-immune function interactions and bone biology in meat- and egg-type poultry. He has authored or co-authored over 75 peer-reviewed articles, and 10 book chapters. In 2016, he spent a 6-month sabbatical in Colombia, working with a major broiler integrator. He is currently part of the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine’s committee to revise and update the 1994 Nutrient Requirements of Poultry. In 2023, he started Alpine Poultry Nutrition, Inc., with a vision to communicate the science of poultry nutrition to end users in the poultry industry.
Dr. Jason Emmert
Dr. Jason Emmert received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois and began his career as a member of the faculty of the University of Arkansas Poultry Science Department. In 2008 he returned to the U of I as an Assistant Dean in Academic Programs for the College of Agricultural, Consumer, and Environmental Sciences, and in 2017 he joined the faculty of the Animal Sciences Department.

On the lookout for pathogen threats: Salmonella and E. coli in the poultry industry - Dr. Tim Johnson
“Despite our best efforts, we haven't been able to totally get rid of Salmonella and E. Coli. You can work really hard to do that, but as soon as you accomplish your goal, another threat will come right in."
Maximizing broiler performance: the importance of the physical quality of feed - Dr. Kelley Wamsley
"In general, feed quality is pretty bad in the industry, right? There's a variety of factors playing heavily against having really high feed quality".
Breaking down barriers: the use of phytase on poultry - Dr. Michael Bedford
“What's really changed is that the efficacy of the phytases along with their ability to release phosphorus and calcium have improved, so we're seeing a better release of these nutrients from phytic acid”
