Jennifer Chase is interested in the continual development and optimization of cost-effective time-efficient laboratory methods for high throughput sampling, without compromising assay sensitivity. She enjoys finding new and useful applications for unrelated technologies or techniques that can be applied to existing or new laboratory methods that target pathogenic bacteria including, E. coli O157, non-O157 STEC, and Salmonella spp.
