Christian Sonne is a Professor, DVM, PhD, DScVetMed (dr.med.vet.), Dipl. ECZM-EBVS at Aarhus University. I have since 1997 specialized myself in the cross-field of biological effects from exposure to environmental chemicals, diseases and climate change. This has given me a unique insight and profile working with a broad range of animals including predatory mammals, raptorial birds, sea birds, fish and partly Humans. I have a broad insight and interest in internal and reproductive organs (histopathology, size, and morphology), skeletal system (bone density and morphology using e.g. DXA scanning), immune system (intra dermal testing of lymphocyte functioning, immune globulin production and cytokine and APP expressions), endocrine system (steroid and peptide hormones), PBPK modelling, blood biochemistry and infectious diseases (zoonosis). I use my global network to obtain interdisciplinary research results. Since 2015 I have applied my in-depth knowledge and understanding of biological processes to also include specific un-solved wildlife issues in Denmark (eider duck population declines) and health of raptors. Recently my innovative approaches have led among others to the first interactions with private industry focusing on natural resources developments and translational medicine within insulation, osteoporosis and metabolic syndrome. Additionally specialised in surgical field implantations of intra-coelomic (abdominally) and subcutaneously satellite transmitters (PTTs) in various sea bird species and immobilization of deer spp.
