Research work at WVU titled “Capsule Integrated Polypeptide Films Deliver Various Drugs On-Demand” has been accepted as a podium presentation to be presented at the 2019 Orthopaedic Research Society Annual Meeting; fewer than five percent of abstracts are accepted for podium presentations at ORS meetings. This abstract is authored by Shichao Zhang, a postdoctoral research associate at Professor Bingyun Li’s lab in Orthopaedics. A second abstract titled “Silver Nanoparticles and Antimicrobial Peptide LL-37 Present High Antimicrobial Properties against Staphylococcus aureus Small Colony Variants” has been accepted as a poster presentation, and this abstract is co-authored by Jason Kang, a graduate student of the Clinical and Translational Science program at WVCTSI, and Frederik Brønsted, a WV INBRE student from West Virginia Wesleyan. Both projects are currently funded by the Department of Defense.
