Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Biochemistry
  • Metabolism

N. Le Floc’h mainly investigates Animal science, Biochemistry, Valine, Internal medicine and Catabolism. His research integrates issues of Ingestion, Meal and Human nutrition in his study of Animal science. His work carried out in the field of Biochemistry brings together such families of science as Postprandial and Dose–response relationship.

His Valine study incorporates themes from Leucine, Branched-chain amino acid and Lysine. N. Le Floc’h has included themes like Tryptophan and Endocrinology in his Internal medicine study. His Catabolism research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Glycogen, Beta oxidation, Carbohydrate metabolism and Protein turnover.

His most cited work include:

  • Chronic lung inflammation affects plasma amino acid concentrations in pigs (80 citations)
  • The use of free amino acids allows formulating very low crude protein diets for piglets. (55 citations)
  • The use of free amino acids allows formulating very low crude protein diets for piglets. (55 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Animal science, Biochemistry, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Amino acid. His work deals with themes such as Plasma concentration and Meal, which intersect with Animal science. The Valine, Lysine, Free amino and Methionine research he does as part of his general Biochemistry study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Response criteria, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His study on Catabolism and Metabolism is often connected to Residual feed intake as part of broader study in Internal medicine. N. Le Floc’h has researched Metabolism in several fields, including Tryptophan and Haptoglobin. His Amino acid research includes elements of Ingestion, Tyrosine and Food science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Animal science (69.62%)
  • Biochemistry (50.63%)
  • Internal medicine (45.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Animal science (69.62%)
  • Weight gain (8.86%)
  • Internal medicine (45.57%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

N. Le Floc’h spends much of his time researching Animal science, Weight gain, Internal medicine, Endocrinology and Excretion. Borrowing concepts from Residual feed intake, N. Le Floc’h weaves in ideas under Animal science. His work in Meal and Basal are all subfields of Internal medicine research.

His study in Excretion is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Low protein, Dose–response relationship and Free amino. His Free amino research is within the category of Biochemistry. The Biochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Food science and Protein content.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The use of free amino acids allows formulating very low crude protein diets for piglets. (55 citations)
  • The use of free amino acids allows formulating very low crude protein diets for piglets. (55 citations)
  • Impact of feed restriction on health, digestion and faecal microbiota of growing pigs housed in good or poor hygiene conditions. (30 citations)
