Drug-free Antibacterial Technology for Medical Applications (a HyMedPoly + Lucideon + Cambridge Network event)
NEW! Prof Chris Lowe, OBE, confirmed as speaker. Infection has become one of the toughest problems in the medical world. As bacteria become more resistant to drugs, materials and surfaces are developing as complementary measures for infection control and management. If you're interested in these technologies from business, clinical or research perspective this is for you.

The meeting is supported in part through HyMedPoly, a 4 year Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme project developing new anti-bacterial therapies based on polymers and inorganic materials. There will be an opportunity to view posters on the project and to meet members of the project’s researcher cohort who will outline results to advance products for medical and personal healthcare.
HyMedPoly has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant programme No. 643050.
This event is being run jointly by Cambridge Network with member, Lucideon, an international, independent materials technology company that applies its materials expertise in ceramics, metals and polymers to a range of sectors including healthcare, construction, ceramics, aerospace and power engineering.
