About

After graduating from Université du Québec à Montréal in 2015 with a degree in molecular biology and biotechnology, Élodie Larouche (M.Sc.) pursued her master's degree in veterinary sciences at Université de Montréal. She has since worked on antimicrobial resistance genes found in soil, drainage water, and livestock effluents. Élodie also studies the impact of agricultural activities on the propagation and dissemination of antimicrobial-resistant microorganisms in the environment, as well as pathogenic microorganisms found on farms and in poultry and swine slaughterhouses, both of which represent a potential danger to the environment and human health. She has been a member of the IRDA team since 2014. Élodie began as an intern and is now a research assistant.
