Subjects include the detection, genetic diversity, evolution, and epidemiology of a wide range of enteric pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Key pathogens of interest currently include rotavirus, norovirus, campylobacter and cryptosporidium. Our work also addresses disease prevention including the impact of interventions such as rotavirus vaccination.
