Completed projects and works

  • AEROFISH : Study of Aeromonas spp. infection in pond fish farming and salmon farming in Pays de la Loire region 
  • ANTIBIOFISH : aims to describe the evolution of antibiotic resistance of Aeromonas and Yersinia ruckerii strains isolated from diseased fish over the last 40 years.
  • Economic efficiency of control actionThis thematic field aims to identify the brakes and levers concerning a choice made among different options of control strategies as well as to evaluate the cost-benefit ratio in order to provide professional and/or public decision-makers with relevant information.
  • EQUIBIO"Maintaining the Balance: Concept and Approach for Animal Health and Welfare in Organic Ruminant Farming", a project funded under the GISA meta-programme.
  • Evaluating a control strategyThe objective of modelling at the scale of a metapopulation is both to better identify the key parameters involved in the spread of pathogens between herds and also to predict ex-ante the expected efficacy of different disease control strategies at the population level.
  • Health risk factorsThe identification of risk factors and quantification of their effects on the occurrence of health disorders, including exposure to pathogens, is critical for the development of appropriate control measures against enzootic and/or multifactorial diseases.
  • Q feverCoxiella burnetii, agent of a topical zoonosis: Q fever.
    • Public health issues
    • Animal Health Issues
    • Socio-economic issues
  • Host and vector heterogeneityThe susceptibility of a host to a pathogen and the shedding of that pathogen may vary between individuals and over time within an individual. In addition, the contact structure between hosts may be heterogeneous in time and space. This research theme is dedicated to the determination of the influence of host and vector population heterogeneity on the dynamics of pathogen propagation.
  • Disease impactLongevity, growth, reproduction, milk production are all parameters potentially impacted clinically or subclinically by diseases.
  • IMPROImpact matrix analysis and cost-benefit calculations to improve management practices regarding health status in organic dairy farming
  • BVDControl of Bovine Viral Diarrhoea Virus (BVD) infection in cattle
  • MARIAGE : Economic impact of reproduction in dairy cattle breeding. Automated monitoring of reproduction: innovations and applications for dairy cattle breeding
  • ParatuberculosisParatuberculosis is a frequent infection in cattle herds, causing serious economic losses due to culling/death and reduced zootechnical performance of the affected animals.
  • MIHMES : Multi-scale modelling, from animal Intra-Host to Metapopulation, of mechanisms of pathogen spread to Evaluate control Strategies (funding PIA-ANR-FEDER Pays de la Loire)
  • OSCARIn agricultural landscapes where cattle farming occupies a large area, pastures are adjacent to natural ecosystems frequented by diverse wildlife that share many common pathogens with cattle. The passage of these pathogens is possible via disease vectors such as ticks, which are the main disease vectors in Europe due to their role in human and animal health. In addition, these landscapes are changing in particular as a result of global changes, especially changes in land use.
  • Park Community : ticks and pathogens transmitted in the context of a zoological reserve dedicated to cervids/bovines
  • PICSAR: Evaluation of strategies for the control of bovine paratuberculosis integrating genetic selection, biosecurity and exposure management in livestock farming.
  • Predictions of epidemiological and economic modelsThe objective is twofold:
    • to master modeling and model analysis tools to study/parameterize complex models
    • understand the influence of model assumptions on model predictions in animal health epidemiology and economics.
  • RedAB : Rationalizing the use of antibiotics in cattle farming with innovative tools for training and advice
  • SANT'Innov: Innovating in animal product chains to reconcile greening and competitiveness: animal health perspective
  • Respiratory disordersIn the Pays de la Loire region, beef production from young uncastrated male cattle is highly developed. Grouped together in buildings from the age of 6-8 months, respiratory disorders being the first health problem.
  • UMT Cattle Health: The UMT "Controlling the Health of Cattle Herds" is a research and development project-team, created in 2008, and located mainly within the UMR ONIRIS-INRA Biology, Epidemiology and Risk Analysis in Animal Health BIOEPAR. It was renewed in 2013 for a new 5-year project.
  • Informative value of the testsIn order to conduct descriptive and analytical epidemiological studies, it is necessary to have reliable tools for the fine measurement of health states.
  • Xenobio-tick: Sequencing the transcriptome of ticks for the development of new acaricides
