Dragan Antic

Senior lecturer in veterinary public health, University of Liverpool, UK

I am veterinarian, Diplomate of ECVPH and senior academic regularly involved in teaching, research and knowledge exchange in microbial risk assessment/management of zoonotic foodborne pathogens and food safety management systems. My research interests are in policy-led food science/microbiology topics, mainly in developing controls (interventions) for main foodborne pathogens in meat chain.

Dragan is one of the training school organisers. He will be your host and deliver several sessions:

  • Welcome message
  • Workshop: Risk categorisation based on Campylobacter in chickens
  • Global risk categorisation of pig farms and pig abattoirs based on four pig hazards

Risk categorization is one of the key components of risk based meat safety assurance system. Campylobacter is top one foodborne hazard in Europe, but risk categorization of farms and abattoirs based on Campylobacter risks is underdeveloped and underutilised. Let us explore this in more details!
