Completing the cycle of investing in research and having that effort and resources improve people’s lives is products on the market. At Emory we are blessed with talented faculty seeking knowledge and innovation in so many interesting areas. This provides my office with rich opportunities to seek partnerships with industry and move research from the lab to the market.

WASH: Addressing Water Safety and Sustainability

Katharine Robb

Reliable data on the status of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) in healthcare facilities in low- and middle-income countries are scarce. In order to promote advocacy and action in this area, we need knowledge of baseline WASH conditions and sustainability and a standardized measure to monitor improvement. Katharine Robb saw this unmet need in her research and fieldwork and began creating a solution.
