Anne Marie Bakke

 Anne Marie Bakke is a trained veterinarian and employed as an associate professor in animal nutrition at the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science (NVH), a position she has held since 2010. Her responsibilities include teaching and research in the area of nutrition, feeding and clinical nutrition. She has her education from the University of Connecticut, USA (Bachelor of Science in Animal Science in 1986), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, Germany ( in 1993) and NVH, Norway ( [Ph.D. equivalent] in Animal Nutrition in 1999). Dr. Bakke was a Fulbright scholar at University of California Davis for one year from 2004-2005 working in the area of selenium toxicokinetics in green sturgeon intestine, but has otherwise stayed at NVH, employed as a post-doctoral fellow (1999-2004) and scientist (2005-2009) before accepting her current position. Currently her research focus is on feedstuff evaluation, including genetically modified maize and soybean as well as isolated antinutritional factors found in plant ingredients, in cultivated fishes with focus on responses in digestive/gastrointestinal physiology, pathology and immunology, implications for disease susceptibility as well as other health aspects. She has considerable expertise in intestinal immune responses in Atlantic salmon using soybean meal-induced enteropathy, a T lymphocyte-mediated inflammation in the distal region of the intestine, as a model. She has published more than 40 papers in scientific journals, several book chapters and other reports, and serves as referee for several journals in the area of veterinary science, nutrition and physiology. She has served on several boards and committees including the Local Organising Committee for the 15th International Symposium on Fish Nutrition and Feeding (ISFNF 2012), European Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Platform (EATIP), the board of Aquaculture Protein Centre (APC, a Centre of Excellence, Norway) and an ad hoc committee for the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety.
