Project description

The study will adopt a multidisciplinary scientific approach for development of Campylobacter Microbiological Risk Assessment (MRA) aiming at reducing the risk of human disease from consumption or mishandling of raw or undercooked broiler meat products. Micriobiological, epidemiological and molecular genetic studies will be integrated to provide mathematical and biological contribution to Campylobacter risk mitigation strategies in broiler meat chain.
