New research aims to create a surface coating that will kill COVID-19 on contact
New research is underway to develop a coating that will kill the COVID-19 virus immediately upon contact with any surface. The antiviral coating could be applied to all personal protective equipment and high-touch surfaces, greatly reducing the risk of community transmission of the virus.
A researcher in MME at Waterloo Engineering is part of a team that has been awarded US $412,000 by the National Football League (NFL) to develop a better, safer helmet.
Duane Cronin, a professor of mechanical and mechatronics engineering, will contribute sophisticated impact testing and advanced computer modelling to optimize helmet performance and reduce the risk of head injuries.
