I am retired scientist from the military. I have been helping some friends with research and they suggested that I look for a grant to continue my research. I am working on a totally food safe formula to add to animal feed, specifically swine and poultry, that would reduce the level of E. coli and Salmonella contamination that is in the feed as well as using my formulation to reduce contamination levels throughout the entire butchering and rendering process.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
I need funding to upgrade my lab to a BSL2 level and to hire a lab tech or intern to help with the research. I would also need funding to send samples of the formula to a GLP certified laboratory for verification of efficacy in order to submit data to the EPA, FDA and USDA for registration as an antimicrobial. Also, I currently can do bacteriological testing but I lack the instrumentation to do real time quantitative PCR for virus contamination testing.

This will be our first time applying for grant funding.
