FendX McMaster Funding PathogenReducing Spray Nanotechnology FendX Technologies announces that McMaster University (McMaster) submitted an application for a Natural Sciences and Engineering Council (NSERC) Alliance grant with FendX as the industry sponsor. FendX Technologies is a nanotechnology company developing surface protection coatings to reduce the spread of pathogens.

Advancing Spray Nanotechnology Development

FendX, in collaboration with McMaster, has been advancing the development of the spray formulation. FendX licensed it from McMaster on May 17, 2023. If awarded, this NSERC Alliance grant will contribute to funding the advancement of spray nanotechnology. It will include scale-up and testing.

FendX continues to pursue the development of a commercial spray product to protect high-touch surfaces from contamination and curb the spread of pathogens.

"We are pleased with our successful collaboration with McMaster and as we jointly advance our development programs. We support sponsoring grants that can contribute to funding for the advancement of our products under development," said Dr. Carolyn Myers, chief executive officer of FendX states.

"If granted, this would mark the second NSERC Alliance grant received by McMaster with FendX as the industry sponsor. The initial grant, awarded in May 2022, supports the development and scale-up of our innovative product REPELWRAP™ film," added Dr. Myers.
