Development of a Risk Assessment Dose-Response Model for Food Borne Listeria monocytogenes


The goal of this proposal is to develop a dose-response model of L. monocytogenes using pregnant rhesus monkey as surrogates for immunocompromised subpopulations. One of the objectives of the study is the development of an hepatocyte model to screen for relative virulence of different strains of this pathogen.
