Gomes Neto Lab

The Gomes Neto lab at OSU CFAH, led by Joao Carlos Gomes Neto, PhD, MS, focuses on veterinary epidemiology and microbiology to identify population based patterns of spread of foodborne pathogens, in addition to seeking to identify actionable gut microbiome-based signatures of colonization resistance against such pathogens, aiming at improving food safety at the pre-harvest stage in swine and poultry production systems.
