LANL researchers to develop E. coli detection tools

-A A +A

Researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory and the New Mexico Consortium received a portion of a recent $25 million grant from the US Department of Agriculture to study E. coli in the beef industry.
The USDA awarded the grant to this team of researchers to help reduce the occurrence and public health risks from Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) along the entire beef production chain.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln are the principal investigators on the multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary team of researchers, educators and extension specialists.  The LANL-NMC portion of the grant totals $1 million for three years.
“Shiga toxin-producing E. coli are a serious threat to public health and our food supply,” said Dr. Harshini Mukundan, a LANL-NMC chemist working on the project.
“These strains of E. coli are emerging to be a major health concern for not just the United States, but for the world at large.  The cases are typically associated with the consumption of under-cooked beef, but raw milk and under-pasteurized apple juice can also carry the pathogen,” Mukundan said.
