Fighting infections before they begin: using topographic coatings to reduce the incidence of bacterial infections

This project will develop new coatings that are designed to reduce the spread of bacteria. By reducing the spread of bacteria we expect to reduce the incidence of dangerous bacterial diseases. The coatings will be developed by a team of engineers and microbiologists.
