This semester, we’re testing the waters — literally.

Three days a week, professor Brian Mailloux, professor JJ Miranda, and a team of Barnard researchers brave the basements of campus buildings to retrieve sewage samples. Their objective? To monitor wastewater for the virus that causes COVID-19. This real-time data is crucial to keeping our campus safe.

“This is why we do science. Everyone is putting their expertise together to make something useful and tangible for the community,” remarks professor Miranda.
