JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas - Dr. Tony Yuan, Naval Medical Research Unit San Antonio senior scientist and biomedical engineer at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, stands next to a second generation electrospinner that was built in 2017 to expand capability of NAMRU-SA to fabricate 3-D nanofibrous scaffolds. The electrospinner uses high voltage electricity as a force to produce and create a nanofibrous scaffold that contains natural fibers, which will be used as a wound dressing, to deliver biomolecules and drugs to heal and treat the wounds of service members injured in combat.
