Veterinarians that work with pigs make important and global contribution to society by ensuring adequate and safe food is available, while still maintaining the health and welfare of pigs. In addition, pig veterinarians are extending the scope and delivery of veterinary science by becoming involved in training programs for pig producers, quality assurance programs, and establishing and managing production systems and global disease prevention.

This years Australian Pig Veterinarians Virtual Conference brings together the profession with 7 hours of high quality CPD and delves into the questions encountered in the veterinary practice and industry today. It is an event not to be missed and offers a flexible and on-demand virtual format.

On-demand videos of the entire conference will be available for registered delegates until 23 March 2022. Please be logged in to watch the talks.

Professor Dena Lyras is the Deputy Director of the Biomedicine Discovery Institute at Monash University and the President for the Australian Society for Microbiology. She was awarded an Australian Research Council Laureate Fellowship in 2021. Her laboratory studies gut pathogens, particularly clostridia involved in antibiotic-associated diarrhoea in humans and animals. Her laboratory uses infection and toxin models to understand how these microbes interact with the host and cause disease. Antibiotic resistance in gut microbes is also a major research area. In collaboration with industry, her laboratory is developing strategies to prevent and treat these infections.
