Natalie Pulido presents her thesis work, “Effect of Standard Post-harvest Interventions on the Survival and Re-growth of Antibiotic-resistant Bacteria on Fresh Produce”. Natalie was our first graduate student to successfully complete her work as part of our project objectives. This study was performed to determine the survival of antibiotic-resistant bacteria on raw, peeled, carrots after washing with commonly used chemical sanitizers. Natalie’s important work is a step towards developing science-based policy towards tackling the serious threat of antibiotic resistance. Congratulations to Natalie!
