讲座题目：Antibiotic Resistance associated with the food chain
主讲人： Shea Fanning，爱尔兰都柏林大学教授、食品安全中心主任
Professor Fanning was appointed to the Chair of Food Safety & Zoonoses in 2002. He is attached to the UCD Public Health, Physiotherapy & Sports Science. He graduated as a Biochemist from University College Cork and later was awarded his PhD in Molecular Microbiology.
Currently, his research interests include the application of molecular methods to food safety, including the use of bacterial whole genome sequencing (WGS) strategies, applied to the control of zoonotic food-borne bacteria and the protection of public health. A significant part of his work is related to the characterisation of the genetic mechanisms contributing to multi-drug resistance emerging in bacteria of food-producing animal and human origin and to how bacteria persist in the food production environment.
Professor Fanning is a member of the editorial boards of four International journals, Applied & Environmental Microbiology; Foodborne Pathogens & Disease; Journal of Food Protection; Microbial Drug Resistance; and an Editor of a further two journals Research in Microbiology & FEMS Microbiology Letters.
