As the makers of SmartSilver®, a safe and highly effective antimicrobial additive, NanoHorizons is well versed in making health care environments cleaner for patients and caregivers through applications in operating room paints, equipment, and medical scrubs. Dr. Delattre will share research on antimicrobial efficacy in various applications.
• Dr. Marian McCord, Assoc. Professor, Textile Engineering, Chemistry, and Science, NC State University. Dr. McCord specializes in research and development of textiles that prevent or treat disease or improve human health and well-being. McCord will present her latest research findings and insights into the role textiles play in critical global health initiatives.
• Dr. Benjamin Harrison, Asst. Professor, Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Harrison's focus is on oxygen-producing biomaterials for tissue regeneration. He will also discuss the importance of textiles in building artificial tissues and organs.
