Successful EADGENE_S & ATF seminar 'Healthy livestock and people': Integrated approaches needed to improve animal health
Further improving animal health will remain an important issue for ensuring a sustainable livestock sector in Europe. Integrated and innovative approaches are needed to realise improved animal health. This is the main conclusion of the seminar ‘Healthy livestock and people’ that was organised May 14 in Brussels.
Juan Lubroth of the FAO and Bill Stanley of Aviagen Group will also speak at the seminar ‘Healthy Livestock and People’ at May 14 in Brussels. This seminar is co-organised by the Animal Task Force and EADGENE_S. Registration for the event is still open.
The seminar will discuss the integrated approaches that are needed to secure animal health in Europe. We are happy to announce that Juan Lubroth of the FAO will add to this discussion a global perspective. Lubroth is the FAO’s Chief Veterinary Officer. He will speak to us about the risks and opportunities of global animal health for Europe.
From the industry perspective, Bill Stanley, Veterinary Health Director of the Aviagen Group, will address how animal health issues are dealt with within industry, and how they work together with research to improve animal health issues. Altogether, the seminar will provide a floor for a lively discussion between industry, policy-makers and researchers on the way forward to secure animal health in Europe.

The EADGENE Project:
Origin and goal
EADGENE was originally a Network of Excellence, funded by the EC, and EADGENE's Partners now continue to work together as a European Research Group (ERG).
EADGENE aims to coordinate a genomics approach to the unravelling of the host-pathogen interactions in domestic livestock. Thus, EADGENE aims to provide the basic knowledge necessary for the development of new or improved therapeutics and vaccines, improved diagnostics and the breeding of farm animals for disease resistance. By concentrating on pathogens of importance in the food chain, this research will impact upon human health and lifestyle choices. The outcomes of this work will help ensure that Europe retains its status as a world leader in animal health for years to come.
