We are working to producing a biodegradable chronic ulcer dressing, which releases an antibacterial agent that prevents the growth of bacteria within the ulcer. This will have a two-fold success of improving healing rates by preventing infection and help prevent the rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria. The research is at the interface between tissue engineering and antimicrobial resistance.

Funded as a 3 month project by SHAMROK (Sheffield antimicrobial resistance network).

“Our network focuses on the development of physical and physico-chemical tools for understanding bacteriology and the host response, the development of new surfaces, dressings, and tissue engineering related approaches for preventing infections and improved drug delivery strategies for antimicrobials.”
