Our new bacterial-resistant coating for medical devices is featured in UCLA’s student-run newspaper the Daily Bruin.
Professor Richard Kaner’s new bacterial resistant coating for medical devices is featured in UCLA’s student-run newspaper, the Daily Bruin. Kaner group alumni Brian McVerry (Ph.D. ’16) and Ethan Rao (B.S. Biochemistry ’16) helped to develop the coating that is transforming the lives of patients who are required to use implantable medical devices on a long-time basis.
