Virginia Sea Grant announced an award of $119,000 to study the effects of high hydrostatic pressure (HPP) in inactivating Hepatitis A virus in both shucked and unshucked oysters. The project, led by Dr. Daniel Holliman, M.D., research scientist and director of research for the HPP lab, and Laura Douglas, a research associate and manager of the HPP lab, will identify one or more high pressure processing schedules resulting in inactivation of the virus.
