The Bowdish and Brown labs have been working together to develop a saliva test that can be used to detect asymptomatic and presymptomatic infections. We call the study COVID-SPIT (COVID-Saliva Protocol Implementation Test) and here Dr. Bowdish describes the importance of asymptomatic testing and results and successes so far.
Congratulations to Keith Lee for winning the IIDR Award of Excellence for best undergraduate poster and Julie Kaiser for winning the best graduate poster.

Way to go team!
