University of Rhode Island President Marc B. Palange visited the NanoBio Engineering Laboratory on Nov. 19 to learn more about the research being conducted by Assistant Professor Daniel Roxbury and his graduate students.

One of the projects the students showed the president was the smart bandage, which uses single-walled carbon nanotubes within the bandage to identify an infection in a wound by detecting concentrations of hydrogen peroxide.
