By Cameron Good (LUCI)

Researchers from UPMC and LUCI fellow, Dr. Cameron Good and colleagues from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory (CCDC-ARL) created an individual biocontainment unit, or IBU, to keep front line health care workers safe while they provide live-saving care. The device is described in a study published today in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.
