Project Number: 1935-42000-075-06
Start Date: Sep 01, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2015
A new food safety research program will be established to train graduate students to conduct advanced research in predictive modeling of foodborne pathogens and spoilage microorganisms in local raw and processed Chinese foods. The predictive models of foodborne pathogens of significant public health concern, such as Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella spp., Listeria monocytogenes, and Vibro parahaemolyticus, as well as spoilage microorganisms in various raw and processed foods will be developed.
