PI Contribution My team in Liverpool provided expertise and training in Thailand on the molecular epidemiology of Campylobacter in broiler chicken production. Work on this project has now ceased.
Collaborator Contribution The Thai collaborators collected Campylobacter isolates and production and environmental information from every stage of the chicken production chain.
Impact A PhD student Sakaoporn Prachantasena 2014-2015 (Royal Golden Jubilee Fund, Thailand), visited Liverpool to undertake further characterisation work on Thai poultry isolates, including whole genome sequencing, survival in water and soil, cell invasion in Caco-2 cell lines. Access was also provided to training and facilitires. This work has been written up for publication, which has been submitted to PLoS One. Two other Thai PhD students spent 3 months in Swansea last year.
