“Our initial trial data, obtained in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada, demonstrates the efficiency of the coating in deactivating 99.9 per cent of human coronavirus in 30 minutes,” said Yue, a James McGill Professor in the Faculty of Engineering.

McGill researchers working to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 on high-touch metallic surfaces

Posted on

McGill University professor Stephen Yue and Dr. Chen Liang, a researcher at the McGill AIDS Centre and Lady Davis Institute, received an NSERC Alliance COVID-19 grant to produce a cost-effective, production-ready antiviral coating that could significantly reduce the rate of SARS-CoV-2 transmission on high-touch metallic surfaces in public spaces such as schools, office buildings, and clinics. The work will be carried out in collaboration with a team of researchers from the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and industry partners Polycontrols, Hatch, and 5N Plus…..
