His primary research interests are enteric viruses, emerging viral pathogens, viral epidemiology, and microbial typing.
The most commonly studied species of enteric viruses are adenovirus (HAdV), enterovirus (EV), genogroup A rotaviruses (GARV), hepatitis A and E viruses and more recently, norovirus (Leclerc et al.
With the decrease in RT infection rates, other enteric viruses may become more common.

1995) and that these pathogens are bioaccumulated by shellfish, the occurrence of significant levels of enteric viruses being discharged in sewage effluent can pose a considerable health hazard to shellfish consumers.
Although many enteric viruses from a number of viral families have been associated with water- and foodborne disease, HAV and NoVs are the leading causes of water- and foodborne illness (Table I) and most of the viruses associated with foodborne disease are of human origin.
As a condition of the full-scale operation, CWW will be required to monitor the finished biosolids for helminth ovum and enteric viruses in a manner similar to the requirements for Hyperion.
We've looked at enteric viruses, the protozoan Cryptosporidium and disease-causing bacteria like Salmonella and Aeromonas," he says.

It would not be unreasonable to suggest that the actual concentrations of enteric viruses are 10-100 times the number observed experimentally.
Because influenza viruses, including swine influenza A (H1N1), are more susceptible to disinfection than most enteric viruses (like Poliovirus, Hepatitis A, or Norovirus), and the influenza viruses are slightly larger and more effectively removed by filtration, current drinking water treatment barriers provide a high degree of protection from "swine flu.
