Professor Chris Elliott

Institute of Global Food Security, Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland

Since 1986 Chris has been active in research related to veterinary drug residue analysis and specialised in using immunochemical based screening technologies. The research has widened to include a wider range of toxic chemicals in foods and agricultural commodities such as mycotoxins, phycotoxins and plant toxins. The technologies platforms researched have also increased to include many forms of biosensor and lateral flow techniques. He has published more than 300 papers in the field of detection and control of chemical contaminants in agri-food commodities and co-ordinated one of the world's largest research project in this area (www.BioCop.org). He has also co-ordinated another major EU research project QSAFFE which is dealt with contaminant issues along the animal feed supply chain.
