Novel PHAge MEthods for improved virus inactivation

Project summary

While the burden of waterborne diseases is disproportionally higher in poorer countries, the safety of our water supply is challenged everywhere by rapid world population growth and climate change, testing the capacity of sewage treatment systems and resulting in increasing environmental pollution. Therefore, effective removal and inactivation of viral pathogens during wastewater treatment is a global issue. I propose to develop better systems to monitor and assess virus inactivation methods during wastewater treatment.


The outputs of this research fellowship are expected to have global application as well as provide useful tools for improving wastewater management and water quality.
