PARTNER UNIVERSITY

Aston University

Research Areas & Focuses

  1. Development and characterisation of bioactive materials that provide a controlled localised released of antimicrobial ions to prevent infections and the formation of biofilms
  2. KTP to develop materials to disrupt biofilms on/in endoscopes to enable better endoscope cleaning protocols to be developed
  3. Exploring the antibacterial efficacy of XF-73 against bacterial biofilms in the presence and absence of blue light
