Presentation

  • MARION P.G. KOOPMANS

    CV

    "An estimated 70% of emerging infectious diseases (EID) in humans are zoonotic infections, where humans become infected after direct or indirect exposure to animals and the microbes that they carry. The impact of such zoonotic infections may be limited unless the pathogens..."

  • DAVID TORRALLARDONA

    CV

    "A drastic increase in the global demand for animal products is expected for the next decades. The challenges faced by current animal production systems to meet such demand in a sustainable way will be discussed"

  • SANDRA EDWARDS

    CV

    "Both the formulation of the diet and the method of feeding can affect animal welfare. However, in turn, the welfare state of the animal can also affect feeding behaviour and feed utilisation. This lecture will explore these two-way relationships and how such knowledge can be exploited in different livestock production systems"

  • ISABELLE EDWARDS

    CV

    "Food safety is a major issue throughout the world. In this respect, much attention needs to be paid to the possible contamination of food and feed by fungi and the risk of mycotoxin production"

  • JACK DEKKERS

    CV

    "Genetic improvement has been very effective at increasing levels of production in livestock but not at improving resistance to disease."

  • JAMIE NEWBOLD

    CV

    "The rumen plays a central role in the ability of ruminants to produce human edible food from resources that are otherwise not available for consumption by mankind."
