BacAttack

Research

The research in BacAttack is focused on the development of a unique self-regenerating surface that prevents biofilm formation using a stealth attack mechanism. New antimicrobial strategies will be investigated to resolve the issues of resistance development and combatting of multi resistant strains. Interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs) for long term release of antimicrobials will be developed. The IPNs contain hydrogels where the antimicrobial is stored until the release starts at the insertion of the device. The work in BacAttack is divided into eight work packages (WP).


Prototypes of interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs) for use in urinary catheters. The IPNs contain hydrogels where the antimicrobial is stored until the release starts at the insertion of the device.
