How Dr. Fraser’s research is transforming health care

Angela is aiming to research and prevent disease caused by human noroviruses. Human noroviruses sicken over 21 million Americans each year, making them the number 1 cause of acute gastroenteritis in the U.S. Human noroviruses, like most microbes that cause acute gastroenteritis, are nearly 100% preventable if one properly implements known preventive strategies. She is actively involved in several funded studies to design, deliver, and evaluate the effect of disease prevention interventions on reducing cases of acute gastroenteritis.
