Poland presentaion 2 Poland presentaion 2 Presentation Transcript

  • 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.
  • 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
  • The Institute - active in two main areas basic and applied research
    • The basic research :
    • Molecular genetics including functional genomics
    • Animal biotechnology and embryology
    • Cytogenetics
    • Animal behaviour
  • Applied research
    • Animal breeding and genetics - elaboration of such methods of animal improvement and production, which render possible the production of safe and valuable food ,
    • And
    • considering of animal welfare , and a limited unfavorable effect of agriculture on the environment .
    • Institute publishes an English language quarterly “ Animal Science Papers and Reports “ covered in Journal Citation Reports / Science Edition (Master Journal List in Philadelphia –USA) .
    • The Institute cooperates with 38 national and 40 foreign scientific and research institutions
    • 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.
    • The Institute comprises well equipped laboratories of:
    • food quality improvement,
    • functional genomics,
    • molecular biology,
    • embryology,
    • GMO and biochemistry,
    • possesses modern animal facilities,
  • Proposal of Polish Food Technology Platform associated with European Technology Platform Food for Life
    • Food safety and expectations of consumers
    • Application/use of the modern food processing technologies
    • and
    • Animal welfare and environment protection
    Improvement of nutritive and health promoting properties of food of animal origin obtained in sustainable production systems with reference to:
    • 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)
    • Participating in UE calls - 2009-2013
    • KBBE 2009-2-4 -Prospects for novel foods
    • (bioethical aspects & societal needs) –Support Action
    • KBBE 2009-2-7-02- Development of functional foods and ingredients (database on traditional foods and bioinformatics) – India
    • KBBE –2009- 2-3-03- Sustainable food and feed processing
  • 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
    • 2 day s international conference for p articipants and speakers from outstanding EU research institutions
    • 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
  • Topics
    • Achieving sustainable food production
    • The impact of animal food products with special reference to bio-active components on human health.
    • Producing functional food of animal origin enriched with bio-active components.
    • 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.
    • The relationship between genetic polymorphism and quality of products of animal origin.
    • 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
    • Food market UE-27- 900mld euro and 4 mln employees
    • I ncreasing risk of civilization diseases (obesity, diabetes, hypertension, osteoprosis, allergy, cancer problems) .
    • Food overproduction – quality, functional foods
    • Consumers expectations – food safety, quality and sensoric value
    • Wide interdisciplinary approach to the food chain aspects
    • 1. Genetics aspects of food quality improvement –the selection of optimal genotypes (races and their crosses).
    • 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
    • 3. The evaluation of food safety (contamination with heavy metals, pesticides, microbiological aspects).
    • 4. Evaluation of technological value of functional food and their biological analysis (using model animals and human)
    • 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
    • 6. Marketing policy ( trade mark) and economic aspects of production of functional food s .
    • 7. Elaboration of innovative technologies
    • A) for production functional food -farmers
    • B) such food processing technologies protecting bio-components in functional products –biomilk, bio-eggs (milk microfiltration vs UHT) -industry
  • Possibilities of collaboration
    • 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 .
    • Mutual cooperation between IGAB PAS and research institutions in Kazakhstan
    • 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.
    • 4. Novel food products from unconventional animals like ostriches, deer, guinea fowl, pheasant – niche production
    • 5. Practical aspects of animal science and production
  • Thank you! Professor Jarosław Olav Horbańczuk, Ph.D., D.Sc. Institute of Genetics and Animal Breeding PAS Jastrzębiec n/Warsaw Tel. +4822/ 756 17 11, www.ighz.edu.pl; email: olav@rocketmail.com [email_address]
