Section for Food Safety and Zoonoses

Our section studies food borne pathogenic bacteria and zoonoses caused by bacteria transmitted from animals to humans. We provide new knowledge relevant to prevention, control and treatment within areas such as antibiotic resistance and alternatives to antibiotics, phage therapy and hygiene. Our work covers the entire food chain from the point of the primary production to the consumer and has a strong foundation in the molecular mechanism that underlies the behavior of bacteria in this chain. 

The section consists of the following research groups:
