Full Text: A new company launched last year uses nanotechnology developed by Fiber Science Assistant Professor Juan Hinestroza for a wide variety of applications including chemical warfare suits, anti-counterfeiting devices, detection of dangerous chemicals, and antibacterial products for the hospitality, law-enforcement, and medical industries. The venture company focused on commercializing this research, iFyber LLC, was launched and funded by KensaGroup LLC in collaboration with the Cornell Center for Technology Enterprise and Commercialization. iFyber LLC uses technology developed through a cross-campus collaboration by Hinestroza and Aaron Strickland, a research associate in the Department of Food Sciences.
