As elective surgeries resume at Arizona hospitals and businesses, schools, and universities reopen around the state, research continues at universities and private institutions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, a student-led team at the Luminosity Lab at Arizona State University has created low-cost sterilization systems to help sterilize N95 respirators. One of the systems is also being tested to sterilize school supplies and technology.
