Poster #162: Courtney Cookson – Preventing Bacteria Growth on Ear Ventilation Tubes via Microtextured Surfaces

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Bart Raeymaekers

In this research I found microtextured designs that will be used on the surface of ear ventilation tubes. The purpose is to inhibit bacteria growth. The designs are made by considering the critical dimensions of bacteria, analyzing the engineered roughness model, and ensuring there are pathways for the bacteria to travel.
