Norovirus Persistence in Surface Waters

Ali Boehm received a new grant from NSF to study norovirus persistence in surface waters. Even though norovirus is a leading cause of water-associated illness worldwide, there are only 2 studies on its persistence in surface waters. Norovirus cannot be readily cultured, so innovative methods have to be developed to approximate its infectivity during persistence studies. Boehm is working with collaborators at the CDC including Stanford alumna Mia Mattioli.
