Work package 4 leader.

Louise Kruse Jensen, DVM, PhD, is assistant professor of Veterinary Pathology at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

I am educated as a veterinarian in 2008 with specialization in animal science and biomedicine.  In 2013 I finished my PhD entitled “Development, characterization and application of a porcine model of haematogenous osteomyelitis in children.” My main focus research areas are bone pathology and laboratory animal science. I have many years of experience with surgical inoculation procedures obtained through course activity and training. Currently, I am also interested in how bacteria initiate biofilms in human and animals and why biofilms are so difficult to eradicate both by antibiotics and the host.
