This information has been taken directly from the FLI's website:The work
of the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut (FLI) focusses on farm animal health
and welfare and on the protection of humans from zoonoses, i.e.
infections which can be transmitted from animals to humans. The FLI does
basic and applied research in different scientific fields, such as
physiology, ethology, epidemiology, immunology, virology, bacteriology,
parasitology, and related sciences.
Our work aims at: the prevention of diseases by developing and improving rapid diagnostics and prophylactic measures, providing the background for modern control strategies for animal diseases and zoonoses, improving farm animal husbandry in compliance with animal welfare, preserving the genetic diversity of farm animals and supporting the efficient utilisation of animal feed as basis for the production of high quality animal-based foodstuffs.
As a federal research institute and independent higher federal authority under the Federal Ministry for Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection, the FLI has a consultative function which helps provide the scientific basis for political decision-making. The institute performs epidemiological investigations during outbreaks of animal diseases. The institute also prepares risk assessments on various infectious diseases of farm animals.
The institute works as national Licensing Authority for products that are not destined for application in animals (in vitro diagnostics). Furthermore, the FLI scientifically supports the competent authorities on the implementation of Council Regulation (EC) No 1099/2009, article 20, regarding the protection of animals at the time of killing.
At present, the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut has approximately 900 employees in eleven institutes at six locations.
