Developing new methods to detect Gastro

Flinders University Associate Professor Jill Carr is working to develop new methods to detect Norovirus – a common and highly infectious form of gastro.

Jill recently received a Flinders Foundation Health Seed Grant for the world-first trial, which aims to stop costly gastro outbreaks sweeping through schools, aged care facilities and hospital wards.

Human norovirus causes rapid onset and explosive vomiting and diarrhoea, with an estimated 1.8 million cases in Australia each year.
