Current Projects:

  • Development and application of molecular methods for the rapid and accurate detection and quantification of human pathogenic Campylobacter and Arcobacter
  • Development of prebiotics and/or probiotics for preventing the colonization of bovine gastro-intestinal tracts and subsequent release of human pathogenic Campylobacter and Arcobacter species on farm and during processing
  • Elucidation of factors influencing colonization of and release of Campylobacter and Arcobacter species from the gastro-intestinal tract of bovine and their role in the epidemiology of campylobacteriosis and arcobacteriosis
  • Management of enteric bacteria associated with cattle
  • Management of pathogens and resistance to antimicrobial agents in foods of animal origin throughout the food continuum
  • Pathogens and antibiotic use in beef: safety throughout the farm to food continuum
