Venue: Hauser Forum, The Entrepreneurship Centre, 3 Charles Babbage Road, Cambridge CB3 0GT

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.  “Drug-free Antibacterial Technology for Medical Applications” will review advances and needs in these technologies from business, clinical and research perspectives.

You can register for the meeting at

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.

Supported in part through HyMedPoly, there will be an opportunity to view posters on the project and to meet members of the project’s  researcher cohort.
