The 2015 French Association for Animal Production (AFZ) annual PhD award attributed to Edin Hamzić

The annual AFZ 2015 PhD award attributed to Edin Hamzić
Edin Hamzić received the 2015 PhD award from the French Association for Animal Production (AFZ), a branch of the EAAP (European Association of Animal Science) for his doctoral work entitled "Genetic bases of response to two major pathogenic agents in broiler chickens and laying hens".

Edin's doctoral studies were led mainly with the GIS (Genetics Immunity Health) team of GABI as one of the European EGS-ABG doctoral projects. His co-advisors were from INRA (Bertrand Bed'Hom and Marie-Hélèné Pinard-van der Laan) and the Aarhus University (Helle Juul-Madsen adn Bart Buitenhuis). The breeder Cobb-Vantress co-financed the studies.

The AFZ news release

Adopted with a very large majority, the Board of Directors declared as top candidates (first and second position) Jessie Guyader for her work on “Manipulation of hydrogen available in the rumen to limit methane emissions by ruminants” and Edin Hamzic for his work “Genetic bases of response to two major pathogenic agents in broiler chickens and laying hens”. Each of these PhD dissertations was classified ahead of the others because of the clarity of the summaries, the scope of the work and the number of publications. However the jury was not able to choose between the two candidates, Jessie Guyader and Edin Hamzic. Both laureates will receive the sum of 1000€ each which will allow them to present their results during the annual EAAP meeting ( to be held in Belfast early September 2016.

Edin Hamzić will therefore participate in the next EAAP meeting in Belfast (from 29 August to September 2) where he will give a talk entitled "Genome-wide association study of the Eimeria maxima response in Cobb500 broilers".
