The 2020 Laureate – professor Peter L. Roeder
Professor Peter Leonard Roeder was awarded the Bertebos Prize 2020 for his exceptional contributions regarding control of transboundary animal diseases (TAD) and emerging diseases around the world.

During his career, Professor Roeder has worked for national and international bodies, in Asia, Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean and Europe. Most notable are his efforts concerning international coordination of TAD control and emergency preparedness. His success has been made possible by his interpersonal and multidisciplinary skills, but also his abilities to create links between basic and applied research, laboratory and field aspects, and between animal owners, society and authorities.

Professor Roeder was a key player in the Global Rinderpest Eradication Programme (GREP), where he contributed to the understanding of the distribution and epidemiology of rinderpest and provided leadership. As result of a joint effort, rinderpest was the first eradicated TAD in livestock on a global level.

Professor Roeder is presently engaged in another eradication programme, e.g. against Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR).
