Hampton Roads Health Care / Life Sciences Community
Norfolk has tremendous potential for innovative technological discoveries and world class collaborations. EOScu, a copper-infused biocidal surface for health care settings manufactured by Norfolk-based EOS Surfaces, is undergoing the world's largest clinical trial. Expect deployment of this technology in acute care settings abroad. CIRS is recognized worldwide for tissue simulation technology and the manufacture of phantoms. These are just two examples of rapidly growing companies.
Resources include twenty Medical Centers of Excellence, as well as commercial applications for military, maritime and environmental interests such as Old Dominion University's Center for BioElectrics. The Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute is the largest facility in the world for proton treatment of cancer. Eastern Virginia Medical School accomodates private users for the high tech simulation classroom center. Their Robotics program is a joint program with ODU.
