has caused closures of hospitals, schools, homes for the elderly, and also disrupted travelespecially on cruise liners."

The ASU scientists will provide better methods for detection of noroviruses in food, water and environmental samples. "Our effort at ASU will be to devise novel detection technology," Arntzen says. "This effort is led by Chris Diehnelt, Ph.D., of Biodesign's Center for Innovations in Medicine. The goal is a very rapid system to sample the food supply and to be able to detect and remove contaminated products before they are consumed."

In the current project, the team will focus on norovirus contamination in three major foods: shellfish, produce and ready-to-eat food. The team will evaluate a new technology, binding reagents called synbodies, that may be used to produce a rapid, low-cost diagnostic test for identifying noroviruses.
