Research area :Veterinary pathology, wildlife diseases
Research area :How animal diseases impact on poor people and how people's knowledge, attitudes and behavior in relation to infectious animal disease affects disease epidemiology
Research area :Her work focuses on research and development of surveillance, epidemiology and control of infectious diseases. Salmonella in cattle has been a focus for her research during the last years.
Research area :Data analysis for decision making in animal health, in particular for the design of surveillance. Transforming data to information, the most effective and accessible way, is the goal of her research.

Research area :Development of statistical methods for interpretation of results from sampling and disease surveillance. Development of methods for interpretation of forensic results. Risk assessment of hazardous substances in animal feed.
Research area :Molecular microbiology and food safety
Research area :Infectious poultry diseases
Research area :Health and Disease in Swedish Wildlife
Research area :Integrating GIScience methods and applications into disease modeling and applying quantitative spatial analysis methods to epidemiological and environmental issues.
Ivana Rodriguez Ewerlöf
Research area :Disease spread modelling, network analysis of animal movements, digitalisation, animal health and welfare.
Research area :Works with various epidemiological issues related to surveillance, control, diagnostic methods and risk factors for serious infectious animal diseases.
Jonas Johansson Wensman
Research area :Infectious diseases, small ruminants, sustainable livestock production
Research area :Researcher within the area of health related environmental microbiology and feed safety. The research focus on fecally transmitted pathogens and their behavior outside their host and risk for disease transmission through the environment e.g. via water and feed.
Research area :Studies of Staphylococcus aureus in mastitis with a holistic view, from genetics to clinic. Development of communication models in the areas of biosecurity and One Health.
Research area :Her research focuses on AMR, and infectious diseases in horses.
Karin Persson Waller
Research area :Mastitis and other udder diseases in ruminants.
Research area :Food- and waterborne protozoa (Cryptosporidium species and Giardia lamblia), parasite genomics, parasite transcriptomics, development of new diagnostic tools for molecular identification and typing of parasites
Karin Wallin Philippot
Research area :Infectious diseases in reindeer
Research area :Infectious disease epidemiology and disease control, with main focus on exotic animal diseases
Research area :Virus-host-interactions, mRNA-vaccine, antivirals
Research area :Feed safety
Research area :The aim of the doctoral project is to study the development of immunological memory and tolerance with special focus on the interaction between antigen-presenting cells and T cells from different immunological compartments in influenza virus-infected individuals.
Research area :Epidemiology, biosecurity/infection control, disease control, disease surveillance and poultry.
María Rincón Gracia
Research area :AMR
Research area :Lameness in pigs is a major welfare concern. Research including comparison of the long term efficiency of treating lameness with and without pain relief and also examination whether lameness as piglet predispose to lameness later in life.
Research area :Infectious diseases; Metagenomics; Aetiology; Bioinformatics
Mikaela Klahr Fritz
Research area :The role of intestinal flora in preventing weaning diarrhea in pigs
Research area :His research is focused on development of molecular assays for pathogen-specific detection of nucleic acid sequences in animals. Experience in different real-time PCR design, application and in droplet digital PCR, primer and probe design, assay optimization and validation.
Research area :Antibiotic resistance and use of antibiotics
Research area :Researches clinical and subclinical diseases in pigs with the aim of curing or even better preventing diseases. Healthy pigs are climate smart because diseases require energy. Healthy pigs do not need antibiotics and therefore also contribute to preserving the durability of antibiotics.
Research area :New sequencing techniques and bioinformatics to improve our ability to find the sources and routes of transmission of bacteria
Research area :Stefan’s research is focused on methods for disease spread modelling and surveillance.
Research area :One Health, disease control, wild rats and their zoonotic pathogens (including Leptospira).
Research area :Simulation of disease surveillance in infectious disease models
Research area :Mosquitoes, genetic identification, DNA-barcoding, vectorborne diseases, mobile DNA-sequencing
Research area :Durability, infection prevention, preparedness, ruminants, One Health, infectious diseases
Research area :Enhancing surveillance system and outbreak investigations of zoonotic hazards, such as foodborne diseases and antimicrobial resistance, in animals and human population incorporating NGS data.
Research area :Infectious diseases in ruminants. Udder health, alternatives to antibiotics, lentiviruses. Some of the projects are carried out in low-income countries.
