Viral Aerosol Detection in Bats

Invisible airborne viruses are the source of numerous infectious diseases, but their detection is limited due to their ultrafine size. We are investigating the extent to which bats transmit viral aerosols, such as SARS-CoV-2, in order to better understand how viruses interact in the environment and their impact on human health.
