NC State researchers’ efforts to understand norovirus is no gag.
Lee-Ann Jaykus is a professor of food science at NC State, and she’s scientific director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture Food Virology Collaborative. She and other scientists study norovirus, and a team at Jaykus’ lab
at NC State decided to design a machine that could help them study how norovirus spreads. With
that idea, the vomiting machine was born.
