Diana Meemken

Professor of Meat Hygiene, Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, Dipl. ECPHM

The core elements of her research activities are investigating the epidemiology of zoonotic pathogens in food producing animals and food products as well as designing intervention strategies along the food chain. She furthermore focus on the continuous enhancement of the effectiveness of the risk-based meat inspection by developing and verifying evaluation systems for food safety, herd health and animal welfare.

Diana leads WG2 together with Truls Nesbakken and is one of the training school organisers.

Her contribution to the training school are the following:

  • Food Chain Information (FCI) and Harmonized Epidemiological Indicators (HEIs) as tool for risk categorisation of farms
  • Using FCI & HEIs for risk categorisation of farms
  • New application possibilities in the diagnostic methods: multiserology

I am convinced that this Training School will broaden the horizons of each individual because of the international participants.
