Mo-Sci’s Day Named to Missouri University of Science and Technology Board of Trustees
The board is made up of Missouri S&T alumni and friends whose accomplishments, experiences, and interests help guide the university’s future.
Ted Day, owner and CEO of Mo-Sci Corp., was recently elected to the Missouri University of Science and Technology board of trustees. The board is made up of Missouri S&T alumni and friends whose accomplishments, experiences, and interests help guide the university’s future. The board serves as the key advisory group to the chancellor on strategic direction and means to enhance the university’s stature. Its members also serve as ambassadors for S&T and supporters of the university’s philanthropic goals.
Mo-Sci produces precision glass technology, including borate-based bioactive glass products designed for wound care, scar revision surgery, hemostatic bandages and dressings, treatment of acne and related inflammatory processes, and biologically active coatings for orthopedic implants. Day holds five U.S. patents and has published several technical articles and presented his research widely.
A gift from Day and his wife, Kim, established the Delbert Day Cancer Institute at Phelps County Regional Medical Center. Named in honor of his father, a Curators’ Distinguished Professor emeritus of ceramic engineering at Missouri S&T, the institute opened in January 2017.
Day earned a bachelor’s of science degree in pharmacy from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Pharmacy in 1986 and received an award of professional distinction from Missouri S&T in May 2018. He is also an honorary knight of St. Patrick.
