He has more than 25 years of experience in the field of epidemiology in animal health and veterinary public health. He has conducted various national and international research programmes on the epidemiology of viral infectious agents in pigs (PCV2, PRRS, influenza virus, Hepatitis E virus, etc.), including quantitative epidemiology and modelling approaches. He is also a diplomate and current President of the European College of Porcine Health Management (ECPHM). He has authored or co-authored more than 100 scientific papers in international peer-reviewed journals (H-index=34).


Mouna ABED-ZAHAR (France)


Mouna Abed-Zahar is a veterinarian specialized in avian pathology at the Veterinary School of Maisons-Alfort, France in 2011.

After having worked at private avian practice, she started in 2013 at the National High Veterinary School of Algiers as assistant professor and after as lecturer on avian pathology until 2019. In 2015, she started her PhD at ANSES Ploufragan, France (WOAH reference laboratory of Bursal Infectious Disease) and focused her research work on genetic, antigenic and pathogenic characterization of infectious bursal disease virus circulating in Algeria. She obtained her PhD in avian virology, in 2018. In 2021, she started at Labocea (department laboratory in Brittany, France) as head of Immunology, Virology, PCR and Sequencing department specialized in porcine and avian diagnostic.




Santé Publique France (SPF)

Dr Sibylle Bernard-Stoecklin is a veterinarian epidemiologist specialized in public health and virology and has a PhD in immunovirology. She has been working on emerging zoonotic pathogens for a decade. Since 2017, she is working at the direction of infectious diseases of Santé publique France, the French public health agency, in the unit in charge of respiratory and vaccine-preventable diseases. She coordinates the national seasonal influenza surveillance and is involved in surveillance and expertise activities on zoonotic influenza and coronaviruses.



Stéphanie DESVAULT (France)

The French Biodiversity Agency (OFB)

Stéphanie Desvaux is a veterinarian epidemiologist and public health officer, currently at the French Agency for Biodiversity (OFB), in charge of surveillance and research programs on regulated diseases in wildlife populations. After several years working for international organisations, she conducted a PhD on the epidemiology of highly pathogenic influenza in South East Asia. In France, she coordinated the scientific framework of several surveillance programs and, since 2017, has work more specifically on disease at the interface between domestic and wild animals: bovine tuberculosis and African swine fever particularly. Understanding transmission mechanisms, in order to propose better surveillance protocols as well as adapted controlled measures, is the heart of her activities. Her team at OFB is involved in the surveillance of wildlife morbidity/mortality events in France (through Sagir and SMAC networks respectively for – mammals, birds and amphibians – and chiropterans) and, therefore, is at the crossroad of different issues: conservation, cynegetic, public health and animal health.
