Poland presentaion 2

  1. 1. Institute of Genetics and Animal Breeding of the Polish Academy of Sciences Jastrzębiec n/Warsaw Telephone: +4822/ 756 17 11 to 18, Fax: +4822/ 756 16 99 e-mail: J.Horbanczuk@ighz.pl Professor Jarosław Olav Horbańczuk, Ph.D., D.Sc.
  2. 2. Since 2000 IGAB PAS runs permanent postgraduate studies, and recruitment of the best graduates is done every 2 years The Institute - 1 4 0 persons 42 scientists : 11 professors 10 associate professors 21 doctors (PhD) 18 PhD students
  3. 3. The Institute - active in two main areas basic and applied research <ul><li>The basic research : </li></ul><ul><li>Molecular genetics including functional genomics </li></ul><ul><li>Animal biotechnology and embryology </li></ul><ul><li>Cytogenetics </li></ul><ul><li>Animal behaviour </li></ul>
  4. 4. Applied research <ul><li>Animal breeding and genetics - elaboration of such methods of animal improvement and production, which render possible the production of safe and valuable food , </li></ul><ul><li>And </li></ul><ul><li>considering of animal welfare , and a limited unfavorable effect of agriculture on the environment . </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Institute publishes an English language quarterly “ Animal Science Papers and Reports “ covered in Journal Citation Reports / Science Edition (Master Journal List in Philadelphia –USA) . </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The Institute cooperates with 38 national and 40 foreign scientific and research institutions </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Institute posseses Experimental Farm, keep ing various species of farm animals ( cattle, pigs, goats, sheep, hens, rabbits and quails ), creating unique research possibilities on the European scale. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The Institute comprises well equipped laboratories of: </li></ul><ul><li>food quality improvement, </li></ul><ul><li>functional genomics, </li></ul><ul><li>molecular biology, </li></ul><ul><li>embryology, </li></ul><ul><li>GMO and biochemistry, </li></ul><ul><li>possesses modern animal facilities, </li></ul>
  9. 9. Proposal of Polish Food Technology Platform associated with European Technology Platform Food for Life <ul><li>Food safety and expectations of consumers </li></ul><ul><li>Application/use of the modern food processing technologies </li></ul><ul><li>and </li></ul><ul><li>Animal welfare and environment protection </li></ul>Improvement of nutritive and health promoting properties of food of animal origin obtained in sustainable production systems with reference to:
  10. 10. <ul><li>Meeting in Brussels – spring 2009 support of the milk, meat, egg processing industry in Central and Eastern Europe & from participants of CoE ANIMBIOGEN IN EU (conference 14/15 V 2009) </li></ul><ul><li>Participating in UE calls - 2009-2013 </li></ul><ul><li>KBBE 2009-2-4 -Prospects for novel foods </li></ul><ul><li>(bioethical aspects & societal needs) –Support Action </li></ul><ul><li>KBBE 2009-2-7-02- Development of functional foods and ingredients (database on traditional foods and bioinformatics) – India </li></ul><ul><li>KBBE –2009- 2-3-03- Sustainable food and feed processing </li></ul>
  11. 11. 14-15 May 2009- IGAB PAS Poland Conference on improvement of quality of animal products obtained in sustainable production systems with special reference to bioactive components and their benefit for human health <ul><li>2 day s international conference for p articipants and speakers from outstanding EU research institutions </li></ul><ul><li>Up-to-date knowledge will be provided in relation to quality of animal products especial ly to bio-active components (micro- and macro-elements, peptides or vitamins in milk , meat and eggs from the consumer health (benefit) point of view </li></ul>
  12. 12. Topics <ul><li>Achieving sustainable food production </li></ul><ul><li>The impact of animal food products with special reference to bio-active components on human health. </li></ul><ul><li>Producing functional food of animal origin enriched with bio-active components. </li></ul><ul><li>The influence of feeding and housing systems, and the physiological status of animals (the activity of bio-active substances, oxidative status) on the quality of products in different production systems. </li></ul><ul><li>The relationship between genetic polymorphism and quality of products of animal origin. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>The focus is on improvement of quality of milk, meat and eggs obtained in sustainable production systems (low input, organic) with special reference to bioactive components </li></ul><ul><li>JUSTIFICATION </li></ul><ul><li>Food market UE-27- 900mld euro and 4 mln employees </li></ul><ul><li>I ncreasing risk of civilization diseases (obesity, diabetes, hypertension, osteoprosis, allergy, cancer problems) . </li></ul><ul><li>Food overproduction – quality, functional foods </li></ul><ul><li>Consumers expectations – food safety, quality and sensoric value </li></ul><ul><li>Wide interdisciplinary approach to the food chain aspects </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>1. Genetics aspects of food quality improvement –the selection of optimal genotypes (races and their crosses). </li></ul><ul><li>2. The influence of feeding and housing systems on modifying the chemical composition and nutritive value of milk, meat and eggs with special reference to bioactive components (antioxidants i.e. selen ) and methods of energy- saving production and by-products </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>3. The evaluation of food safety (contamination with heavy metals, pesticides, microbiological aspects). </li></ul><ul><li>4. Evaluation of technological value of functional food and their biological analysis (using model animals and human) </li></ul><ul><li>5. Development of traceability systems of food production along the food chain (from field to fork) – precise livestock farming – PLF. Introducing the labelling system of functional food </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>6. Marketing policy ( trade mark) and economic aspects of production of functional food s . </li></ul><ul><li>7. Elaboration of innovative technologies </li></ul><ul><li>A) for production functional food -farmers </li></ul><ul><li>B) such food processing technologies protecting bio-components in functional products –biomilk, bio-eggs (milk microfiltration vs UHT) -industry </li></ul>
  17. 17. Possibilities of collaboration <ul><li>C reation of international scientific consortia - capable of participation in wide scope, interdisciplinary (with III countries like Kazakhstan and innovative joint grant proposals for research projects within FP 7 in the area of sustainable animal production systems, food quality and animal welfare, genomics, reproductive biology . </li></ul><ul><li>Mutual cooperation between IGAB PAS and research institutions in Kazakhstan </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>3. Postgradutes Studies for PhD students (in english in 2010-2011) in genomics, biotechnology, quality of products of animal origin, sustainable production systems, animal welfare. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Novel food products from unconventional animals like ostriches, deer, guinea fowl, pheasant – niche production </li></ul><ul><li>5. Practical aspects of animal science and production </li></ul>
