By prof. dr. J.A. (Arjan) Stegeman Arjan Stegeman
As professor in Farm Animal Health Arjan chairs a group that teaches veterinary medicine and herd health in farm animals. His research is focused at epidemiology of infections in farm animals with the aim to unravel the mechanisms that determine the distribution of infections in animal populations and establish the effectiveness of control measures. To accomplish this goal his group uses experimental, observational as well as modeling studies. Most of the research has been done in close collaboration with scientists studying the infection process at the individual level, because Arjan strongly believe that this helps understanding observations done at the population level. During his career he has studied epizootic, zoonotic as well as endemic diseases and the population dynamics of antibacterial resistance.
