Objective

Apply multi-omics approaches to study pathogen colonization, gut microbiota function, health and productivity parameters in poultry. Develop antibiotic alternatives as potential intervention/control strategies to reduce the colonization of the foodborne pathogens Salmonella and Campylobacter in poultry. Improve the antimicrobial efficacy of antibiotic alternatives with use of novel compound carriers and delivery methods.
