Microbial Risk Analysis Specialty Group


The Microbial Risk Analysis Specialty Group (MRASG) focuses on public health risks associated with a variety of biological hazards. These hazards generally share many common features, such as the ability to grow, reproduce and die; to disperse both actively and passively; to interact with other biological populations in the ecosystem; and to evolve and adapt.

Hazards we study:

  • human pathogens transmitted through routes such as food, water, air, organs (including blood), or body fluids and excretions
  • zoonotic pathogens
  • biologically produced disease agents (such as allergens and mycotoxins)
  • plant and animal pathogens
  • plant and animal pests
  • invasive species
  • invasive genetic material
