Thanks to our four speakers for their fantastic presentations today at the One Health EJP Dissemination Webinar: New Tools for Detection & Surveillance.
Dr. Gro Johannessen from the Norwegian Veterinary Institute.
Dr. Christen Rune Stensvold from Statens Serum Institut.
Dr. Anja Richter from Robert Koch Institute.
Dr. Marwa Hassan from the University of Surrey.
They provided practical information about the One Health tools produced by OHEJP Joint Research Projects for detection and surveillance activities. Their presentations were focused on the following four projects and the associated tools:
AIR-SAMPLE – A low-cost screening tool in biosecured broiler production.
PARADISE – Metabarcoding for the detection of single-celled parasites in human faeces.
BIOPIGEE – A standardised protocol for disinfectant efficacy on biofilms against Salmonella Typhimurium biofilms.
WORLDCOM – Rapid culture-independent LAMP detection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) markers for environmental water samples.
The insightful questions from attendees made this a highly engaging event, which was skilfully chaired by Prof. Roberto La Ragione.
