Biography Annette Fagerlund

I work at the Department of Food Safety and Quality as a post doc on the project «Safe food and reduced waste: Optimal use of sanitizers against biofilm in food production premises». I have mainly worked with the foodborne, pathogenic Gram-positive bacteria Listeria monocytogenes, Bacillus cereus and Staphylococcus aureus, also in earlier projects at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU) and the University of Oslo. My interests include molecular microbiology and bioinformatics, and the study of bacterial biofilms. In the current project we aim to understand how bacteria found in food processing environments, including L. monocytogenes, survive in biofilms subjected to cleaning and disinfection procedures relevant in the food industry. I am also involved in projects where we employ whole genome sequencing to characterize and genotype bacteria.Education:
PhD (2008). Department of Food Safety and Infection Biology, Norwegian School of Veterinary Science. Thesis: «Bacillus cereus Hbl, Nhe and CytK cytotoxins: Mechanisms, regulation and secretion».
MSc (Biochemistry, 2002). University of Oslo.
