As head of the Zoonosis laboratory I work on detection, typing andantimicrobial sensitivity testing of microorganisms, which are transferred from food or animals to humans where they may cause disease.

I'm educated as a veterinarian in 1985 with a PhD in Veterinary Microbiology from 1991. For several years I worked with research and diagnostics of infectious diseases in animals, in particular aquaculture fish, poultry, fur animals and pets. But now I work with zoonoses. In the Zoonosis laboratory we among others carry out detection and typing of Salmonella, detection and characterisation of Campylobacter, and antimicrobial sensitivity testing of various bacteria with a view to treating animals correctly, risk assessment, or surveillance of antimicrobial resistance.

The Zoonosis laboratory manage national reference laboratory duties and we work according to quality assured methods of which some are accredited.
