Joe DeSimone/Waffle Iron

UNC-Chapel Hill faculty research transfers technology into the commercial marketplace. One of the University’s most successful spin-offs is Liquidia Technologies Inc., created by Professor Joe DeSimone. Liquidia has developed a liquid molding material that cures when exposed to light. It has applications for computer chips, ink jets, medical devices and pharmaceutical products. Another breakthrough involves a method to create the world’s tiniest custom-shaped manufactured particles for delivering drugs and biological materials into the human body.
