Materials science graduate students showcase their company at CES 2019

Crowds on CES show floor

Zhe Ren and Donghui Li, both doctoral candidates in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, devised an adhesive bandage that removes easily after being treated with ultraviolet (UV) light—an especially important development for elderly patients with delicate skin, which can actually tear when a standar adhesive is removed. The duo’s idea previously won the Best Student Startup Group award at the Innovation ShowCASE during 2018 Homecoming Weekend.
