Understanding the sources of Campylobacter in Australia

Campylobacter is a key cause of foodborne disease globally, with Australian rates of reported illness amongst the highest in the world. Critical elements of successful control programs overseas have included collaborative sharing of information among stakeholders, development of innovative genomic and epidemiological methods, and use of this information to develop interventions to reduce the incidence of illness. This collaborative project seeks to harness rapid advances in genomics, epidemiology and mathematical modelling to identify risks and reduce human illnesses from Campylobacter in Australia.
