About this Research Topic
Campylobacter spp and Helicobacter spp are important gastrointestinal pathogens that are major causes of acute gastroenteritis and gastric disease, respectively. For both Campylobacter spp and Helicobacter spp, contaminated foods play an important role in the transmission of the microorganism to humans.
The 20th International Workshop on Campylobacter, Helicobacter and Related Organisms (CHRO) will be held in Belfast, Northern Ireland from September 8-11th, 2019 and will act as a platform to display the most recent advances in our understanding of these and related organisms and their influence in the global food supply chain and public health.
Key topics that will be covered include pathogenicity and virulence factors; poultry and non-poultry epidemiology and ecology; emerging and related species; control strategies; outbreak/epidemiology and public health; detection methods and characterization; antibiotics and antimicrobials; bioinformatics, and genomics and evolution; immunology and host response.
This Research Topic will increase the base knowledge and understanding of the process of survival of Campylobacter spp and Helicobacter spp within the environment, in particular, relating to food safety, and to host-pathogen interactions.
