Episode 1

Geraldine Duffy speaks to Sean Duke about how the ‘One Health’ concept, which links animal and human health researchers, is improving food safety. Geraldine talks about the major research trends in food safety, some of which appeared at an international One Health conference held in Teagasc Ashtown Conference Centre.

Luiza Wasiewska is a Walsh Fellow PhD candidate from Poland working between Teagasc and the Tyndall National Institute. Luiza spoke to Sean Duke about her research into a new, reliable, faster, easier-to-use biosensor to detect pathogenic E. coli, as well as her passion for science communication.

The 11 compartment research glasshouse at Ashtown was built a few years ago to assist industry to do research that can answer their most pressing problems. Michael Gaffney brought Sean Duke on a tour of the computer-controlled facility.
