Drug-free Antibacterial Technology for Medical Applications (a HyMedPoly + Lucideon + Cambridge Network event)


Drug-free Antibacterial Technology for Medical Applications (a HyMedPoly + Lucideon + Cambridge Network event)

Infection has become one of the toughest problems in the medical world. As bacteria become more resistant to drugs, materials and surfaces are seen as complementary measures for infection control and management. This event will review advances and needs in these technologies from business, clinical and research perspectives.

Event details:

Drug-free Antibacterial Technology for Medical Applications (a HyMedPoly + Lucideon + Cambridge Network event)

Aspects covered include;

  • Clinical Need and Issues faced by drug-free antibacterial technology
  • Antibacterial Materials; Synthetic Polymers, Natural Polymers, Glasses and Ceramics.
  • Developing products and novel technologies for medical devices and cosmetic, pharmaceutical and medical applications
  • Networks and support in anti-bacterial technology.

The meeting is supported in part through HyMedPoly, a 4 year Marie SkÅ‚odowska-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 SkÅ‚odowska-Curie grant programme No. 643050.
