Legionella.org's research efforts have contributed to advances in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of Legionnaires' disease. We continue to evaluate new and innovative control strategies. Our work includes experiments performed in the lab to evaluate biocides, biofilm behavior, and pathogen growth in batch and bench scale plumbing systems. The information generated from our research is presented to disinfection technology firms seeking our thorough and independent evaluations of their products, as well as shared with the public at technical conferences and scientific presentations.
We hold academic appointments at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in the Department of Medicine and the Swanson School of Engineering in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
