Project Description

New and effective low-fouling medical device coatings are needed to tackle the threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Our team aims to work with a postdoc to develop a revolutionary, on demand release bactericidal coating. We believe that in-house polyampholyte technologies will allow bacteria-triggered release of materials to prevent surface colonization.
