Virus focus group
The virus focus group meets twice a year to steer our ‘virus controls’ member–funded project and provides an interface with our virus programme in general. Members of the group are updated on the project progress and feedback is obtained from the group on future research plans. At the most recent meeting in November 2016, Martin D’Agostino updated the group on the detection of foodborne viruses.
The group currently has 14 members from different sectors of the food industry – manufacturing and retail as well as producers of decontamination systems. The next meeting is planned for September, and the group is still open for new members to join, so please get in touch.
