Hello! My name is Nora Jean Nealon. I received my bachelor’s degree in animal science and nutrition from Rutgers University. Using the clinical and research experience I gained as an undergraduate, I enrolled in the combined DVM/PhD program at Colorado State University, where I am currently integrating studies in small animal medicine with cell and molecular biology. My graduate work focuses on probiotic metabolism of rice bran, with an emphasis on how rice bran enhances the antimicrobial activity of probiotic bacteria against a variety of enteric pathogens.
