Developments in the Detection and Control of Foodborne Viruses
Matthew Moore, University of Massachusetts
My research primarily focuses on food safety microbiology; especially with a focus on foodborne viruses. Foodborne viruses are the leading cause of foodborne illnesses, especially human noroviruses. These viruses impose a severe public health and economic burden globally every year. Human noroviruses are responsible for over 200,000 deaths globally every year—many of which are children under the age of 5—and impose an economic burden in the billions of dollars. Our lab’s research can be divided into a few broad categories:
