Optimized Detection of Intentional Contamination Using Simulation Modeling

Principal Investigator: 
Don Schaffner
The goal of this project is to develop a computer simulation model which allows the user to specify the container size, contamination prevalence, agent concentration and agent distribution. The model will be able to address differing sampling requirements for agents able to cause illness at very...

Conversion of the Academic CMS to a Web-Enabled Version for Academic Use

Principal Investigator: 
Susan Harlander
There is significant concern about the ability of government and industry to efficiently and effectively recognize and respond to intentional bioterrorist attacks on the food supply that could result in catastrophic economic or human health consequences. The systems employed for safeguarding the...

Modeling the Public Health System Response to a Terrorist Event

Principal Investigator: 
Don Schaffner
The objective of this project was to conduct simulation modeling of the public health system, specifically focusing on the detection of deliberate food contamination events by the public health system, and the response of that system to such events. The simulation model can be used to evaluate the...

Public Health Investigation of Multistate Foodborne Outbreaks

Principal Investigator: 
Craig Hedberg
Purpose: These CIFOR multi-jurisdictional guidelines are intended to help improve communication and coordination between agencies investigating multi-jurisdictional outbreaks at all levels of governmental organization. The guidelines are proposed to help agencies identify multijurisdictional...

FoodSHIELD

Principal Investigator: 
Craig Hedberg
FoodSHIELD (http://www.foodshield.org/) is a Web-based platform designed to facilitate communication and coordination among the various food and agricultural sector laboratories and regulatory agencies. Two comprehensive databases are being developed to support FoodShield: Food&AgDIR, which...
