Dr Peter DAMBORG
Associate Professor in University of Copenhagen
“It is time to think of solutions rather than just (re-)detecting AMR problems we know exist“
Since 2013, Peter Damborg has been employed as Associate Professor within veterinary clinical microbiology at the Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences at the University of Copenhagen. Most of his previous research has centered on antimicrobial resistance, including surveillance, zoonotic transmission, and selection of resistance following antimicrobial treatment. Recently, his focus has gradually changed towards rationalization of veterinary antimicrobial treatment through development of veterinary antibiotic treatment guidelines and research into novel treatment regimes, alternative antimicrobial agents (e.g. peptides), vaccination, and diagnostic tests. Peter is head of a local diagnostic laboratory and de facto Diplomate of the European College of Veterinary Microbiology. He has a large international network and chairs the EUCAST subcommittee VetCAST and the COST Action European Network for Optimization of Veterinary Antimicrobial Treatment (ENOVAT).
