Tine Hald, DVM, PhD, Head of Section of the Danish Zoonosis Centre, Department of Microbiology and Risk Assessment, National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark. Tine Hald’s main research area is the epidemiology, surveillance and control of foodborne zoonoses in the whole production chain. Activities involve the planning and performance of quantitative risk assessments, time series analysis, and risk factor studies. Human-illness attribution, where human illnesses are quantitative linked to the different sources responsible, has her particular interest. A main responsibility is to give scientifically-based advice to veterinary and food authorities, farmers’ and consumers organizations, and international organizations e.g. EFSA and WHO.
