Research activities













September 96-May 2000:

Surveillance of Salmonella in the Danish poultry sector:

  • establishment and maintenance of databases.

  • tracing of infection sources.

  • advising poultry farmers with persistent Salmonella infections
    (cleaning, disinfection, rodent control, biosecurity, and sampling).

June 2000-August 2003:

Project co-ordinator for cleaning and disinfection projects under the Danish Salmonella Control Programme for Poultry, divided into two sub-projects:

  1. Development of microbiological monitoring models in broiler houses: assessment of the impact of cleaning and disinfection procedures on Salmonella persistence.

  2. Heat disinfection as a sanitation method for Salmonella infections in poultry houses.

From January 2001 matriculated at Department of Clinical Veterinary Science,
Division of Food Animal Science, Langford, University of Bristol, England, as an MSc student; as from March 2002 upgraded to PhD student. For more information, click here.

Member of the working group of the book "Desinfektion i husdyrbruget" (5. ed., 2002, The National Committee for Pig Production, Research & Development, Danish Bacon and Meat Council).

September 2003-February 2004:

Project co-ordinator for the innovation law project "Poultry: development of disinfection methods for the elimination of Newcastle Disease, Avian Influenza and Gumboro Disease virus in poultry houses - phase 1 (heat disinfection)".

From March 2004:

Epidemiological registry research in infectious diseases, mainly comprising:

  • Zoonotic gastro-intestinal Salmonella and Campylobacter bacteria

  • Bacteremia
    Participant in the multi-national population-based bacteremia surveillance collaborative;
    attended its introductory meeting on 25-26 February 2010 in Calgary, Canada.
    The collaborative involves six regions in four countries in three continents with a combined annual surveillance population of more than 8 million residents.

  • Antibiotic consumption in pregnancy and childhood and risk of acquring leukemia in children

  • Antibiotic consumption and risk of acquiring antibiotic resistant infectious diseases

  • Biomarkers, especially inflammation biomarkers, in frail patients

  • Biomarkers as indicators of infection in haematological cancer patients
