Dr. Larry Goodridge's primary research interests encompass characterization of the genetic determinants of antibiotic and sanitizer resistance in bacteria isolated from food production animals. Larry has also done research on non-thermal food processing methods for minimally processed foods. He was an Assistant Professor at the University of Wyoming. Receiving his degrees/post doctorate at the University of Guelph with a major emphasis in Food Microbiology and Food Safety, Dr. Goodridge is currently focused on the development of novel diagnostics and methods for control contamination of food-borne pathogens, with a specific focus on development of detection methods and prophylaxis for Escherichia coli O157:H7. Dr. Goodridge was awarded Colorado Space Grant Research Seed monies to support his work on Rapid Detection of Pathogens on Space Missions through Colorado State University's Department of Mechanical Engineering. He started his work at CSU on August 16th, 2006.
