Dr. Shuai wins NSF RAPID grant for COVID-19-related research

May 08, 2020

Dr. Danmeng Shuai (CEE), along with Dr. Yun Shen (Environmental and Occupational Health), has received a one-year, $200,000 National Science Foundation RAPID grant to develop electrospun air filters for SARS-CoV-2 control. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is an urgent need for effective air filters that can capture SARS-CoV-2 containing aerosols. The electrospun air filters are potentially low-cost and scalable, and they can be implemented for HVAC systems and PPE applications.
