There are a number of training resources publicly available. We have a data repository available on figshare. There is also a sample sharing program to assist with protocol validation. We also have a youtube channel with training videos of specific protocols.
The RCN is also starting a journal club in spring 2023 to provide an opportunity for students and early career scientists to network and critically discuss wastewater surveillance research.
The NSF RCN actively coordinates with other related efforts. We encourage researchers to check out the additional resources below:
CoSeS: The Communicating Sewage Surveillance (CoSeS) project connects researchers with public health experts to improve communication and implementation of SARS-CoV-2 wastewater surveillance.
COVID-19 Wastewater-Based Epidemiology Collaborative: Join in the conversation with other WBE researchers using the Slack and protocols.io communities at covid19wbec.org
Human Health Observatory: Based at ASU’s BioDesign Institute, the HHO uses analysis of water, wastewater, and sludge to evaluate the health status of human populations.
SCORE Network: The Sewage Analysis CORe group Europe (SCORE) is an interdisciplinary network that works on development of human biomarkers in sewage for evaluating community lifestyles and health.
