The University of Virginia wrote an inspiring article about Dr. Richard Edlich.
Here is an excerpt from that article:
Today, because of Edlich’s support, the Edlich-Henderson Innovator of the Year Award (previously Inventor of the Year) is given to U.Va. faculty, staff or students whose research discoveries are making a major impact on society.
Edlich founded and directed U.Va.’s Burn and Wound Healing Center, fostering the collaboration of scientists in developing revolutionary advances in emergency medical care as well as burn care.
His projects resulted in several innovative products, including the adhesive skin closure tape now used routinely around the world, and a safe cleanser for decontaminating wounds.
He co-wrote seven books and some 4,000 scientific articles.
“His passion was getting the FDA to banish the cornstarch latex gloves,” Edlich’s son, Richard, said. “He had come very close to completing that dream.”
Cherish your Father this Father’s Day, let them know they are loved!
