UW Bioengineering assistant professor Dr. Kim Woodrow is leading efforts to develop a versatile platform to offer contraception and prevent HIV: an electrically spun cloth made of tiny fibers which release contraceptive and antiviral drugs. The research behind the technology was published this week in the Public Library of Science’s open-access journal PLOS One. Dr. Woodrow has received almost $1 million in funding from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to further develop this technology.
