Dr Ed TOPP

(Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, London, Ontario, CANADA)

Topp

“Impact of agriculture on the environment; the case of antibiotics”

Dr. Ed Topp is a native of Montréal. He studied microbiology at McGill University, and he received his PhD in 1988 from the Department of Microbiology at the University of Minnesota. He is a Principal Research Scientist with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and also has adjunct appointments with the Department of Biology at Western University in London Ontario, and the Department of Soil and Water Sciences at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Dr. Topp has led several national studies that seek to better understand and to better manage the risks that food production practices pose for environmental quality and human health. This work has included terrestrial and aquatic exposure and fate assessments for numerous pharmaceuticals including various antibiotics, impacts of antibiotics on soil microorganisms, and fate of antibiotic resistance genes in soils receiving animal manures or sewage sludge. Dr. Topp is the national coordinator for the Genomics Research and Development Initiative project on antimicrobial resistance, a key component of the innovation pillar of the Canadian National AMR Action Plan. He is a former president (2011) of the Canadian Society of Microbiologists.
