“If the surface is not friendly, it’s easier for the virus to fall apart. Where the
      virus has more friendly interactions with the surface, it’s more likely to stay infectious,”
      said Caryn Heldt, professor of chemical engineering and director of the Health Research
      Institute at Michigan Technological University. Heldt received a NSF CAREER Award
      in 2015 for her research with viruses.
