Public Health Relevance Statement:
Project NarrativeIn the United States, approximately 1.7 million health care-associated infections (HAIs) occur in hospitals annually. Many of the implicated organisms are transmitted from patient-to-patient or health care worker-to-patient via an intermediary in the hospital environment, a fomite. Fomites are nonliving objects, substance, and surfaces capable of carrying infectious organisms. With costs to treat these infections requiring more than $45 billion annually, improved methods of preventing HAIs are needed.The proposed project addresses this complex problem with the development and testing of a first-in-class solution for that will address bacterial, fungal and viral threats.
