Roberto La Ragione

About me:

Roberto graduated in 1995 and then went on to study for a post graduate degree in veterinary microbiology at the Royal Veterinary College. In 1996 he moved to the Veterinary Laboratories Agency to undertake a PhD on the pathogenesis of E. coli in poultry. On completion of his PhD he commenced a post-doctoral position at the University of London, studying E. coli virulence factors and vaccine development. Since 2001 his work has been largely on the analysis of colonisation, shedding and transmission of E. coli O157:H7 by all farmed animal species and he has led a number of Defra and EU projects in this area. Roberto has published extensively in the area of host-microbe interaction with a particular emphasis on E. coli O157:H7. His current research interests focus on the pathogenesis of food-borne pathogens with a particular interest in the development of intervention strategies including vaccination, pre and probiotics for the control of bacterial pathogens such as Salmonella and E. coli in food producing animals. In 2010 Roberto was appointed professor of veterinary microbiology and pathology at the University of Surrey. Roberto also holds a visiting position in veterinary microbiology at Royal (University of London). Roberto gained the FRCPath in 2010 and is the current vice president of the Med-Vet-Net association.
