Foodborne Pathogen Transmission
The Crippen lab investigates the temporal and spatial movement of foodborne bacterial pathogens by insects within food animal production facilities. The Crippen Lab also collaborates with the Tomberlin and Tarone Labs examining the interactions between microbes and flies utilizing decomposing resources and the subsequent influence on insect behavior, genetics, and dispersal of microbes into the surrounding environment.
