the ultimate goal of reducing the burden of food-borne disease caused by viruses."

The project has six core objectives:

  • Develop improved methods of studying human noroviruses and their role in food-borne illnesses.

  • Develop and validate rapid and practical methods to detect human noroviruses.

  • Collect and analyze data on viral food-borne illnesses including how they are transmitted and provide risk and cost analyses.

  • Improve understanding of how human noroviruses behave in the food-safety chain in order to develop scientifically justifiable control measures.

  • Develop online courses and curricula for food safety and health professionals and food service workers, and provide information to fresh produce and shellfish producers and processors on the risks, management and control of food-borne viruses.

  • Develop a public literature database, build virus research capabilities in state public health laboratories, and develop graduate-level curricula to educate masters and doctoral students trained in food virology.

Other NC State researchers involved in the project include Drs. Trevor Phister and David Green (food, bioprocessing and nutrition sciences); Orlin Velev (chemical and biomolecular engineering); Ben Chapman (4H and youth development); Otto (Chip) Simmons (biological and agricultural engineering), and Chris Gunter (horticultural science).
