All Sewn Up

Dr. Hui Cong will soon return to her hometown in China -- but she is leaving behind a body of work that will help make better, longer lasting surgical materials. She has focused her research here at the College of Textiles on absorbable barbed sutures -- monofilaments that each look like the thorned stem of a rose -- which eliminate the need for tying knots, thus reducing surgical time and promoting wound healing.
