Bibliographical note

Funding Information:
We are working on our recently funded Collaborative Research Fund (CRF) project titled “Reducing Transmission of Novel Coronavirus and Other Infectious Diseases Using Food Waste‐derived Medical Textiles via Electrospinning for Healthcare Apparel and Personal Protective Equipment”. We aim to use food waste as the feedstock to produce bioplastics. These bioplastics will be fabricated, via electrospinning, into medical textile materials that can be used in various applications, such as face masks.
