An Interest in Bat Viruses Led to UF Health Virologist’s Development of Coronavirus Test

The UF College of Public Health and Health Professions’ department of environmental and global health and the UF Emerging Pathogens Institute, are leading a joint, around-the-clock effort to better understand and track the coronavirus in health care and community settings. The effort involves numerous scientists, laboratory technicians and support staff working tirelessly behind the scenes as UF Health and local and state health officials move to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

That work is spearheaded by John Lednicky, Ph.D., a member of the college’s department of environmental and global health and the Emerging Pathogens Institute, and Glenn Morris, M.D., M.P.H., the director of the institute.
