Dr. Boerlin completed both his DVM and Dr. med. vet. at the University of Bern in Switzerland, and his MSc in analytical epidemiology at the University of Guelph. His research area is in the field of molecular epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance. He mainly studies Enterococcus cecorum in poultry, but also works with Clostridium perfringens as well as necrotic enteritis in poultry. Currently, there is one post doctorate and one technician in his lab. His previous students are in wide spread fields, from diagnostic laboratories to services, research, and agencies. He collaborates with the Canadian Integrated Program for Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance and his work is funded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, the United States Department of Agriculture, the Public Health Agency of Canada as well as the Mink Breeders of Canada.
