Contribution: Taking part in discussions, sharing experience and comments, improving of methods of evaluation of biosecurity"
Motivation: Evolving of pig industry in the last few decades was extremely fast. Number of animals and their movement increased, which led to fast spread of infectious agents throughout the world, for example influenza A virus (IAV), porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV), porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) or african swine fever virus (ASFV). Thus, it is important to improve knowledge on farm biosecurity, especially in countries struggling with many ASF cases, such as Poland. Joining the group will allow me to exchange comments and experiences with specialists in the field of biosafety.
Scientific Background: Aleksandra Wozniak ñ DVM (2016) PhD (2020). Since 2019 I work at the Institute of Veterinary Medicine at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences. My current research is focused on diagnostic, epidemiology, ways of prevention and control, and impact on production performance of emerging viral pathogens of swine, such as PRRSV, IAV, PCV2, PCV3 and novel porcine parvoviruses. I have experience in scientific projects as a head (1 project) and principal investigator (3 projects). I cooperate with veterinary doctors from all over Poland, for my research I take samples from farms with various levels of biosecurity.
