UGA SCIENTIST CREATES SYSTEM TO DETECT FOOD PATHOGENS IN HOURS, NOT DAYS Quick, efficient pathogen detection and fingerprinting is essential and often lifesaving when it comes to preventing foodborne illness. University of Georgia food scientist Xiangyu Deng has created a system that can identify foodborne pathogens much quicker than traditional methods.

CFS welcomes Dr. Michael J. Rothrock as its most recent Adjunct Faculty. Dr. Rothrock is a Research Microbiologist with the Egg Safety and Quality Research Unit located at the U.S. National Poultry Research Center (USNPRC) in Athens, GA. We are very pleased to increase our expertise network on Poultry Safety and Microbiology.
Dr. Rothrock’s research takes a microbial ecology approach to food safety issues within the various environments along the poultry production continuum, specifically focused on pastured poultry systems. He employs a polyphasic, systems-based method to understand the complex interactions between bacterial pathogens and their environment.”
