The aim of this honours project is to characterise both intra- and intercellular interactions between Salmonella and Campylobacter.

Infection with Campylobacter and Salmonella species are the top to causes of bacterial-related, foodborne gastrointestinal disease. Both bacterial species are commonly found in the farm environment. It is not known, however, how these to bacterial species interact in a co-infection.

Key methodology: Isolation and culture of primary cell lines, transfection of bacteria with fluorescent plasmid, fluorescent microscopy, lymphocyte proliferation assays.
