COVID-19 Inventor Showcase – Novel Indoor Monitoring Techniques for SARS-CoV-2
February 16 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Optimizing Innovation, Commercialization, and Entrepreneurship?of Biomedical Research program of The Ohio State University CCTS in partnership with the OSU Corporate Engagement Office?and Nationwide Children’s Hospital’s?Office of Technology Commercialization?continue its Panel Speaker Series in response to the urgent need for academic innovations to combat the global pandemic. This series features some of the work happening on our campuses at an unprecedented pace on the front lines of innovation.
The novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, is commonly spread indoors, where it is shed from its human host into the surrounding environment. This feature has facilitated transmission, but may also allow for convenient monitoring for COVID-19 outbreaks. This environmental surveillance will remain a critical tool to monitor high-risk populations, even after widespread vaccination. Learn how an interdisciplinary team from Ohio State and University of Notre Dame have developed a convenient and novel indoor monitoring technique that uses vacuumed dust.
