UW Engineering: Schauer leads COVID-19 testing efforts at WSLH

Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene Director Jamie Schauer brings a unique vantage point to the COVID-19 response as both an internationally-recognized air pollution expert and as the leader of Wisconsin’s public health laboratory.

In an interview with the University of Wisconsin-Madison College of Engineering, Schauer – also a UW professor of civil and environmental engineering – reflects on the similarities and differences between infectious respiratory diseases and air pollution and how experts in each can help lead the way forward through the pandemic.
