Inge Santman-Berends, MSc, PhD

'I am an enthusiastic epidemiological researcher who is committed to deliver high quality research and is both scientifically and practically oriented. The thing that I love about epidemiology is that it provides the opportunity to add value by translating  large amounts of data into practical and comprehensible information for stakeholders. I aim to contribute to a livestock industry that is based on preventive medicine rather than cure, that has high health and welfare standards and that is cherished by the Dutch society.'  Inge Santman-Berends
