Dr. Halim Benhabiles is currently an associate professor at ISEN Lille, a French engineering school of Yncréa Hauts de France group. He is also an associated researcher at IEMN (French research institute in electronic, microelectronic and nanotechnologies). His research activities include mainly 3D/2D image analysis using artificial intelligence techniques for the development of new applications in the field of health.

ZLTO

Martine Dellevoet is an experienced Projectleader on various subjects in ZLTO. It suits her well to translate plans together with a team of people into results. She has been projectleader of several (animal health and nutrients) projects in the Netherlands, both regionally and nationally. She has also participated in the international projects AUTOGRASSMILK (FP7) and H2020-projects EuroDairy, DISARM, Nutriman and Roadmap. Her role in these projects is to get things done: monitor deliverables, ensure dissemination and to report.

I’m Janine Roemen, 27 years old. I was born in The Netherlands. As a young girl I wanted to be a veterinarian. I studied animal health and husbandry at the HAS University of Applied Sciences in The Netherlands and I studied veterinary medicine in Belgium for a year. Nowadays I’m working as Specialist Animal Health in the dairy cattle and pig farming at the ZLTO, a farmers organisation in the South of the Netherlands. In this project I am the contact person for the farmers and I provide knowledge and input.

My name is Yvonne Daandels and I work for ZLTO since 2,5 years. My function is Dairy Advisor and I’m specialized in youngstock. I grew up on a pigfarm but when I attended the agriculture school my interest went to dairy. After that I chose business administration and agribusiness at the HAS University of Applied Science. In my job as dairy advisor I have a wide range of dairy farmers as clients. Youngstock is my specialisation but both dairy management and analysing economic results have also my interest. Beside advising I supervise study groups on the same themes as named above. ZLTO is also involved in the project ‘Opportunities for the calf in the chain’. In that project I lead discussions between veal farmers and dairy farmers with the focus on points for improvement in young stock rearing.

UNIVERSITY OF KENT 

Dr. Anastasios Tsaousis is currently a Senior Lecturer in Molecular and Evolutionary Parasitology at the University of Kent. The current research of his laboratory is focused on the investigations of the adaptations of microbial eukaryotic organisms (e.g. Cryptosporidium1-5, Blastocystis, Naegleria, Gregarines, ciliates), and their course in parasitic evolution and diversity. To accomplish this, his laboratory is combining detailed bioinformatics analyses of newly generated genomic/ transcriptomic/ metabolomic results with field, cell biological and biochemical methods to investigate the parasitic and free-living microbial eukaryotes living in diverse and extreme environments.

Dr. Gary Robinson is currently a Senior Lecturer in Microbial Technology at the University of Kent (UK), as well as holding the position of Senior Commercialization Manager of the University of Kent (UK). His research interests lie in the field of applied microbiology, and presently he has been focusing on the understanding and application of quorum sensing within complex microbial systems, the use of biocatalysts within the paper industry, and the large scale production of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. Dr. Gary Robinson also has worked with many companies, including Pfizer, Unilever, Genzyme, and SmithKline Beecham.

Whilst writing my PhD thesis I worked as a research technician in Dr. Tobias von deer Haar Lab (University of Kent) in a project involving the engineering yeast strains for application in industrial biotechnology.

 

 

As of March 2019, I joined Dr. Anastasios Tsaousis Lab (University of Kent) as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the H4DC project, funded by Interreg-2-Seas. In this project, my main focus will be the development of a new and more precise Cryptosporidium in situ detection tool that can be easily affordable and used by farmers to detect the presence of Cryptosporidium in the fecal samples of cows.

Professor Mark Smales is currently a Professor of Industrial Biotechnology at the University of Kent (UK). His research interests focuses on investigating the potential cultured mammalian cells for production of bio-therapeutic proteins, for the generation of diagnostics, and manufacturing of gene therapies. This includes the manipulation of upstream and downstream bio-processes, as well as the use of novel technologies (e.g. genome editing) to engineer cell systems capable of generating a high-yield of high-quality bio-therapeutic recombinant proteins, which can then be used in the treatment of diseases and generation of diagnostic tools.

INAGRO

Isabelle is a master in bio engineering sciences. By her start at Inagro she was employeed as researcher on organic agriculture. Since 2008 she worked consecutively on several projects in dairy farming and advised Flemish dairy farmers on good practices & management. Since 2012 she’s leading the Inagro researchers and advice team working on dairy as well as pig farming. Isabelle and her husband have a dairy farm in the Flanders region.

After her studies as a veterinarian for ruminants, she was employed as a project engineer in Inagro in Rumbeke. She works on different projects concerning heifer raising, claw health, ventilation and emissions. In these projects farmers are brought together to learn from each other in study clubs as well as on farm research is done to follow up the technical results on farms and to help improve them. Data is gathered and analyses are made to create new knowledge. Conclusions are disseminated tailored to farmers. Besides her work for Inagro, she is active on a dairy farm. In the H4DC project farms will be followed up and farmers given advice to reduce the presence of Cryptosporidium and minimise the accompanying losses.

SELAS CVE

Dr Anne Barbier Bourgeois is an expert in parasitology through, for example, managing projects on parasite management in wetlands. On cryptosporidiosis, she is able to carry out risk assessment through questionnaires, provide diagnostic services, design prevention actions and carry out training sessions for farmers. The main benefit is to improve knowledge and management of cryptosporidiosis, major enteritis agent in calves, alone or associated with bacteria and virus, causing economic problems in farms (from loss of growth to mortality) and a zoonosis.
