Advancement of testing protocols for foodborne transmission of Hepatitis E virus

Project Details


Hepatitis E virus is a zoonotic pathogen that is known to be transmitted via undercooked meat. There are a number of culture assays available to study the foodborne risk of HepE but none yet that are fully robust and validated to assess infectivity. It will be a goal of this project to advance testing protocols that can determine impacts of heat/cooking on HepE. This project has been invited by the UK Food Safety Research Network based on our success in researching this area. The funding is supported by the FSA and the BBSRC.
