Nasrin, Arrell Food Institute Scholarship winner, sits with a beef calf

Nasrin Husseini’s research has focused on advancing animal health and global food production in the digital age. Nasrin has already found significant success in her field, becoming the first woman to earn a doctorate of veterinary medicine after the Taliban rule in Afghanistan, before she came to Canada. She has worked at the Toronto Humane Society, the Donland Animal Hospital, and the Kato Animal Hospital in Toronto. Nasrin took the opportunity to work as a research assistant in the Department of Pathobiology at the University of Guelph, and has been earning her master’s with Professor Bonnie Mallard, evaluating and adapting the use of the University of Guelph’s High Immune Response (HIR™) technology to improve beef cattle health and productivity in the face of climate volatility.
