My major area of research interest is pathogenesis of influenza virus. Influenza virus is not considered to be a food-borne pathogen in general. However, a couple of studies reported that influenza virus could be transmitted to eggs.  Recently, we demonstrated for the first time that low pathogenic H3N2 influenza virus (that has potential to infect humans) can be transmitted to internal egg contents which raises concern for egg-borne transmission of virus to humans. Currently, we are further investigating different strains of influenza virus for egg-borne transmission potential and efficacy of the vaccine for pre-harvest control. In addition, in collaboration with Dr. Ahmed Yousef, we are testing post-harvest control of infected eggs.
