New Methods for Norovirus Detection/Prevention
Norovirus is the most common cause of acute gastroenteritis in the United States. Each year, it causes about 21 million illnesses and contributes to about 70,000 hospitalizations and 800 deaths. Norovirus is also the most common cause of foodborne-disease outbreaks in the United States. Researchers have developed a method to detect human norovirus in produce and other environmental samples with low virus concentrations, contributing to our understanding of routes of produce contamination on farms. Dr. Lee-Ann Jaykus will discuss this development as well as the importance of biotechnology to food safety and public health.
