Join the AVPH webinar on Brucella suis in dogs with Dr Siobhan Mor, Senior Lecturer in Epidemiology, University of Sydney

Brucella suis has recently emerged in dogs in NSW. While the disease was previously recognised in Queensland, research in NSW has provided some new insights into the disease. In this webinar you will learn about the clinical presentation in dogs, approaches to clinical management and how to protect yourself, your staff and your clients from this zoonotic disease.

Dr Siobhan Mor is a Senior Lecturer in Epidemiology (One Health) at The University of Sydney. She completed her veterinary medical degree at the University of Sydney in 2003 and a PhD on cryptosporidiosis in humans at Tufts University in the United States in 2009. Following her PhD she was appointed as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Public Health and Community Medicine at Tufts University School of Medicine. During this time she worked as a global health advisor for the RESPOND project (part of USAID's Emerging Pandemic Threats program) which aimed to build capacity for response to emerging diseases in developing countries. She returned to the University of Sydney to assume her current role in the School of Veterinary Science in 2012. Siobhan leads the Epidemiology and One Health group which is investigating the epidemiology of a number of zoonotic, emerging and tropical infectious diseases of global health importance. Her team is currently conducting research on swine brucellosis and salmonellosis in Australia, bacterial and viral zoonoses in pigs in Uganda, and vectorborne diseases in Maasai cattle in Tanzania. She is a member of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists by examination in veterinary epidemiology.
