The University of Tennessee’s Dr. Peter Tsai was honored with the prestigious Innovator Hall of Fame Award for his decades of innovation, developing life-saving technologies that have protected the health of more than one billion people across the globe.
Dr. Tsai is a world-renowned expert in nonwoven fabrics: He’s the architect behind the essential technology in N95 respirators, required by OSHA when working in dusty environments to remove at least 95% of submicron particles, and recommended by the World Health Organization to protect against SARS, bird and swine flu, and other airborne diseases. In addition to respirators, Dr. Tsai’s technology has been widely used by industries for over three decades in products such as HVAC filters and medical face masks. He holds 12 U.S. patents and has secured 20 commercial license agreements and counting; in 2019 alone, UTRF non-exclusively licensed Dr. Tsai’s most recent technology to four companies globally.
