Osaka Prefecture University invites many leading researchers and educators as Guest Professors throughout the year. Each invited professor spends approximately one month at OPU to conduct special lectures, seminars, and individual discussions with faculty and students. The Guest Professor Program aims to stimulate students’ intellectual growth, to provide firsthand access to the finest world-class research, and to build tighter relations between OPU and leading universities around the world.

Our fifth guest in 2015 is Prof. Jacques Mainil from Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Liege, Belgium. Prof. Mainil is one of the most eminent researchers in the field of Veterinary Medicine and he has received many awards from several organizations including Royal Academy of Medicine.

During his stay from July 9 to July 24, 2015, he gave several lectures for the students of the Graduate School of Life and Environmental Sciences (Department of Veterinary Science), as well as for the undergraduate students, together with many opportunities of discussion with them. Also he talked as a special lecturer in the special seminar entitled “The Overlooked Role of Enteropathogenic and Shigatoxigenec Escherichia coli causing Diarrhoea in young Calves”.
