Discover more about the antimicrobial power of silver and of its periodic table upstairs neighbour copper in this post of our blog (in French, English translation coming soon here). Valérie Levée introduces us to QCAM member Phuong Nguyen-Tri (UQTR) and its research on antimicrobial textiles. We remind that this project has received a grant from the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail and is carried out in collaboration with two companies: NanoBrand and Tekna.
