Overview of Research Program
Dr. Doyle's research is in the area of food microbiology and focuses on bacterial foodborne pathogens.
Pathogens under study include Escherichia coli O157:H7 and other serotypes of enterohemorrhagic E. coli, Salmonella spp., Campylobacter jejuni, Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, and Clostridium botulinum.
Development of probiotic/competitive exclusion bacteria to reduce/eliminate carriage of E. coli O157:H7 by cattle and Campylobacter jejuni by poultry.
Development of treatments using approved chemicals to kill foodborne pathogens on produce, meat and poultry.
Development of methods to isolate Helicobacter pylori from foods.
Studies on the infectious dose of Listeria monocytogenes
Studies on the ecology of Salmonella typhimurium DT104
