Anna Lammerding

Ensuring the safety of Canada’s food supply is no small task, so it’s fortunate that Lammerding has a team of food microbiologists, public health veterinarians, risk management experts and epidemiologists to assist her. Lammer-ding was recently named acting director of the Science to Policy Division within the Public Health Agency of Canada, where she focuses on microorganisms that cause disease in humans. Lammerding credits the international network of colleagues she built at CALS for helping her develop her career and her image of the world as a global village. She is an active board member and fundraiser for Friends of the Orphans, a nonprofit that builds homes in Central and South America.
