Olivier Vandenberg graduated as Medical Doctor at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Brussels, Belgium in 1996. In 2001, he completed a Master in Clinical Pathology at the same university and obtained a PhD in Biomedical Sciences in 2006. In 2008, he was appointed Head of the Department of Microbiology of the Brussels university hospitals network. In 2016, Dr Vandenberg joined the Division of Infection & Immunity, University College London (UCL) as Honorary Senior Lecturer.

In addition, he is currently Professor of Microbiology in the Public Health School and in the Faculty of Medicine of the Université Libre de Bruxelles.

Most of his researches focus on emerging foodborne pathogens in both industrialized and developing countries. Since 2000, he has also supervised the consolidation of several microbiology laboratories allowing the implementation of infectious disease surveillance programmes in Low and Middle Incomes Countries (LMIC). Besides this, he also collaborates with different manufacturers in the development of new approaches for the diagnosis and control of infectious diseases.

These field activities led him to be member of the WHO Advisory Group on Integrated Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance (AGISAR) to support WHO’s effort to minimize the public health impact of antimicrobial resistance and the use of antibiotics in food animals. Since 2014, he has been appointed member of the new ECDC Food & Waterborne Diseases – Network Coordination Committee.
