Healthy and resilient livestock

Research output: Book/ReportInaugural speech


Individual animals react differently to similar challenges. Animals relatively unaffected by the challenge or quick to recover are resilient. We will bridge different expertise to unravel the underlying mechanism of resilient animals. Biomarkers and sensors will be used to investigate resilience. The aim will be to understand mechanisms causing variations in responses between individuals after a disturbance. How the balance between health and disease could be influenced. Resulting in resilient animals with a positive effect for animal and human health ‘One health’.
