Dr. Ngoc-Ha Thuy was awarded the prize of the German Society of Animal Breeding (DGfZ) for the best dissertation in the year 2016


Dr. Ngoc Thuy-Ha has received this year's award of the DGfZ for the best PhD in Animal Sciences for her dissertation entitled "Lost in Transition - Genetic, transcriptomic and Breeding Aspects of Metabolic Robustness in Dairy Cows". In her work which was carried out in the Animal Breeding and Genetics group, Dr. Ha has addressed the problem of energy deficit and resulting metabolic disorders in early lactating cows. She studied the problem under three methodologically very different points of view and developed new approaches for breeding solutions to this problem. The prize carrying a value of 1500 Euros was presented to her at the annual meeting of the DGfZ on 20 September in Hannover by the DGfZ president Dr. Otto-Werner Marquardt.
