Nanoparticles And COVID-19 Sewer Sampling: Two UWM Professors Discuss Their Research Projects

As we continue to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, important environmental research continues to take place at top tier research universities across America like UW-Milwaukee.

On this edition of UWM Today, we talk to two scientists who are engaged in research projects tied to one of our most precious natural resources — fresh water. Sandra McLellan and Rebecca Klaper are both professors at UWM’s School of Freshwater Sciences, the only school of freshwater science in the United States. There have been some major developments in the work both Sandra and Rebecca are doing. Sandra’s project involves the study of the coronovirus’ presence in our environment, while Rebecca has received word that a $20 million research project she is involved in has been renewed for another five years.

Tom Luljak hosted UWM Today on WUWM for more than two decades and is the inaugural host of Curious Campus.
