This week, I welcome Francesco Fornasiero on the show to discuss some his work in developing a composite material that makes military uniforms breathable and could protect soldiers from biological and chemical agents.
Dr. Fornasiero is on the research staff of the
Biosciences and Biotechnology Division at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has a mission of strengthening the United States' security through development and application of world-class science and technology to:
• Enhance the nation's defense.
• Reduce the global threat from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction.
• And respond with vision, quality, integrity and technical excellence to scientific issues of national importance.
