Marie was a graduate student in the lab from 1999 until 2004. The goals of Marie's research projects were to develop rapid identification of pathogenic Vibrio parahaemolyticus with serotype O3:K6, and to differentiate pathogenic and non-pathogenic Vibrio parahaemolyticus. She then worked on assay development using gene-based and tissue culture approaches. The title of her dissertation was: “Comparative characterization of Vibrio parahaemolyticus and molecular detection of the pandemic O3:K6 clone”. View key publications from Marie’s time in the lab.
After her work here, she became Assistant Professor of Dairy Science at San Luis Obispo.
