Recherche et / ou projets en cours

Notre but est de comprendre les adaptations que Salmonella utilise pour vivre de la nourriture. Nous nous intéressons aux relations entre l'environnement alimentaire et la fitness bactérienne. Ces informations nous aideront à évaluer et à gérer les risques associés à ce pathogène.

Énoncés de recherches/projets

• Détection et niveaux de Salmonella dans les aliments

• Survie et croissance de Salmonella dans les aliments

• Interventions pour contrôler la présence de Salmonella dans les aliments

• Détection et propagation de la résistance aux antibiotiques parmi les salmonelles
