Mrs Müllner focussed on identifying sources of campylobacteriosis and salmonellosis in New Zealand using novel genotyping and modelling approaches. This study revealed that the majority of human campylobacteriosis cases were due to poultry with widely varying contributions by individual poultry suppliers. Findings indicated differences in transmission pathways in rural and urban communities. These results have supported the implementation of national control strategies.
