Organisation Profile

Our research focuses on the spread of human pathogenic viruses through food, water and environment (surfaces). These viruses are primarily enteric, such as noroviruses, and hepatitis A and E viruses. The group develops sensitive methods for the detection of these viruses from surfaces and from foodstuff. We also investigate the persistence and stability of the viruses during food processing. Our team also looks for methods to inactivate contaminating viruses under various conditions and seeks solutions for improving food safety. Under these topics, we also give our contribution to the SARS-CoV-2 research.
