He has worked on the mechanisms regulating bovine oocyte competence and embryo in vitro development using molecular biology and bioinformatics. He has just finished his post-Doctoral fellowship at the Colorado State University (Fort Collins, CO) where he worked on 2 main projects: 1) loss of oocyte quality with maternal age in mouse and humans and 2) fatty acid metabolism of bovine blastocysts.

Rolando will apply his expertise in tissue culture and molecular biology to the derivation and characterization of rainbow trout intestinal cell lines.
