What we do...

The environmental health (EH) research program of Dr. Banerjee’s Lab focuses on assessing the attribution of different environmental sources in the dissemination of pathogens causing human health risks and microbial food safety. The focus of our research program comprises extensive laboratory-based investigation to develop biosensors and other molecular methods for rapid detection, screening, and characterization of pathogenic microorganisms or toxins from food, environmental (water, air, soil), and clinical samples.
