Dr. Ganesh N. Aderao Dr. Ganesh N. Aderao Designation : Scientist (Animal Nutrition), +91-7073145881 view resume

Dr. Ganesh is a veterinarian and animal nutritionist hailing from Dharmabad, Nanded district of Maharashtra. His educational journey began from his hometown, where he completed schooling up to higher secondary school certificate (10+2). He completed Bachelor of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry (BVSc & AH) from Krantisinha Nana Patil College of Veterinary Science in Shirwal, Satara (MS), under the sole university of state working in the field of veterinary science i.e. Maharashtra Animal and Fishery Sciences University in Nagpur. Driven by a fervent passion for his field, Dr. Ganesh pursued further academic excellence. He successfully obtained his Master of Veterinary Science (MVSc) and went on to achieve a PhD in animal nutrition from the prestigious and premiere institution of India, ICAR-Indian Veterinary Research Institute in Izatnagar, Bareilly (UP). Dr. Ganesh’s academic excellence was duly recognized through numerous accolades including from the ICAR- Junior Research Fellowship (JRF), Indian Council of Medical Research- JRF, University Grants Commission (UGC) NET-JRF, UGC- NET-SRF, and an IVRI institutional fellowship. Besides, he was selected for three months overseas training at Pennsylvania state university, USA under CAAST-ACLH, national agricultural higher education project jointly funded by World Bank and ICAR, India.

Some of the research work where I have worked on and made primary contributions are my MVSc and PhD thesis. During MVSc, I worked on studying effect of polyphenol rich plants in finisher ration for quality lamb production and during PhD I worked on exploring effect of dietary selenium levels on metabolic response, mRNA expression of selenoprotein and performance of animals under heat stress conditions. I have nearly two years of experience in animal feed industry wherein I worked in Godrej Agrovet Ltd., India as Poultry scientist based out of Nashik, Maharashtra. Here, I worked on improving production performance, feed efficiency and reducing feed cost and environmental pollution through dietary modulation.
