Expert in physiology of animal nutrition
Interactions of antioxidants

Professor Milan Marounek is the head of the Laboratory of Physiology of Nutrition and Products Quality. His work has primarily been focused on physiology of animal nutrition.  Experiments worthy of mention were aimed at the mode of action of feed antibiotics, rumen and caecal metabolism of starch and pectin, and distribution of activity of hydrolytic enzymes in the digestive tract offarm animals. Metabolism of phytic acid was studied in poultry, rabbits and calves. Now, he is involved in experiments aimed at interactions of antioxidants (selenium, vitamin E). In recent studies he deals with antimicrobial lipids (alternatives to in-feed antibiotics), and also with problems of quality of animal products (fatty acid profile, selenium content, oxidative stability).
