Research project to analyze human viruses in Winnipeg’s rivers

Does wastewater that’s been cleaned by Winnipeg’s sewage treatment plants carry viruses – including the virus that causes COVID-19 – when it’s released into our rivers?

Jhannelle Francis plans to find out. Francis is a UM master’s student in microbiology and a participant in the Visual and Automated Disease Analytics (VADA) Program – a training program that equips graduate students with cutting-edge skills to analyze health-related data.
