URBANA, Ill.—Get Brian Jacobson started, and he just might not stop. Talking about – and producing – hand sanitizer, that is. He’s that excited about the Integrated Bioprocessing Research Laboratory’s vital role in helping stem the spread of the coronavirus.

It’s also buoyed by a host of other University of Illinois colleges and units pitching in to address serious needs for already-stretched-thin health care facilities around the state.
