Project Title: 
Controlling Multi-Drug Resistant Foodborne Pathogens Using Alternatives to Antibiotics Approach

This research focuses on using pre- and post-harvest interventions to control and/or eliminate MDR pathogens from the food supply. As a pre-harvest strategy, the group investigates new antimicrobials (reduced antibiotic/post-antibiotic phase out view) to eliminate these foodborne bacteria of zoonotic importance in poultry and strive towards translating these research activities to developing innovative approaches or refining existing methods. The researchers also investigate post-harvest interventions, with focus on phytochemicals and the emerging microbials, to improve the microbiological safety of poultry meat and eggs. The goal is to improve human food safety from the "One Health" perspective.
