Process Efficacy Investigation of Infectious Norovirus Particle Ratios and Enteric Viral Surrogates Levels in Environmental and Food Samples


<p>Design and execute a series of experiments designed to assess inactivation pf human norovirus. Specifically, will work with partners in academia to: A. Identify and optimize analytical methods to determine concentrations of human norovirus accurately and precisely as described environmental samples B. Design experimental protocols to accurately and precisely determine the impact of specific process (as defined in table1 of the IAG) these include waste water treatment, chlorination, UV waste water treatment, uptake of virus by shellfish C. Provide raw and analyzed data. D. Work with collaborators to appropriately interpret and report experimental results.</p>
