The Future of Rapid Disinfection, Pandemic & Beyond
Wednesday, September 30th, 2020 @ 5:30pm PST (1.5 hours)
The majority of the discussion about “a new normal” from the pandemic has been dominated by the race for a vaccine and the availability of cost-effective, high volume, rapid testing. A less discussed dimension is the development of novel technologies for disinfection, both of static object and surface cleansing, but also about commercial air purification applications.
Join the MIT Enterprise Forum of San Diego as we host an exciting virtual discussion on September 30th with RESONŌ’s founder and CEO, Hao Hu, and COO, Kaha Aznaurashvili. RESONŌ is a start-up tackling this challenge working at the convergence of virology and physics.
In initial studies, RESONŌ’s foundational technology has been shown superior to ultra-violet light purification methods and others presently used and can be applied not only to the COVID-19 and future pandemic challenges, but seasonal viruses as well.
Topics certain to be discussed:
- How the technology uniquely attacks and neutralizes viral pathogens
- How broad are the company’s Intellectual Property claims and its IP protection strategy
- Regulatory approvals necessary and challenges encountered
- Various product strategies evaluated and the ultimate business model chosen
And, if we are fortunate, RESONŌ may share some of its latest experimental data (for those who are into that) that help bolster their claim to deliver the most effective, safest, and fastest methods to disinfect air and surfaces.
The MIT Enterprise Forum of San Diego is excited to host this timely, powerful, and intriguing discussion. Please join us on September 30th at 5:30pm PST. Meeting info provided upon registration.
