Microbial Disinfection Technologies in Hospital Setting
Project Description

The emergence of drug-resistant microorganisms in hospital environment is both a local and global problem. The adaption of new technologies that enable rapid inactivation of microbes without the risk of tolerance and resistance is important in combating MDROs. This project will focuses on field testing different technologies in hospital settings and evaluating their use and efficacy.
