A Windsor solution to rapidly detect COVID-19 in the University of Windsor and St. Clair College community.
We expanded our currently funded projects to create a COVID-19 detection platform for our community through saliva swab surveillance testing and wastewater monitoring:
Dr. Yufeng Tong's WE-SPARK Igniting Discovery Grant
Dr. Mike Mckay's NSERC, CFI, and Ontario MECP Grants
Together, we formed a multi-disciplinary team to further heighten our defences against COVID-19.
