Corzo’s work recognized

A Mississippi State University poultry sciences associate professor was recognized by the National Chicken Council for his research contributions. Alex Corzo received the council’s Broiler Research Award for research work that has positively impacted the broiler industry.

An eight-year veteran of the university, Corzo is a scientist with the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station. His research is focused on how poultry absorb nutrients and use dietary ingredients.

Corzo earned a bachelor’s degree from the Universidad de La Salle in Bogota, Colombia. He obtained a master’s at Oklahoma State University and a doctoral degree at Auburn University.

In his short career, he has been invited to speak in 13 different countries, co-authored a book chapter and written 79 peer-reviewed manuscripts. In addition to his research, Corzo teaches undergraduate and graduate courses at MSU.
