Welcome to the ELFV !

Research at the Esseili Lab for Food Virology (ELFV) targets the microbial ecology of human viral pathogens and emerging viral pathogens, in order to formulate better strategies for their detection, prevention, and control across a variety of environmental matrices. The overall objective is to decrease the public health and economic burdens of waterborne and foodborne pathogens through discovery of fundamental processes that facilitate the transmission of these pathogens in the environment and harnessing these processes to control the pathogens.
