Seminar on anti-infective materials on 6th July!

Come and join us in our discussion on how to design and test anti-infective biomaterials for the post-antibiotic era.

Time and place: July 6, 2017 2:00 PM - 6:00 PM, Faculty Club at Institute of Clinical Dentistry

Science does not take summer vacation and neither do we! As part of this year's Young CAS workshop, we are organising an open seminar that focuses on the challenge of developing new types of implantable biomaterials that can reduce the risk of biomaterial-associated infections in the times of fading effectiveness of antibiotics.  

The seminar will take place at the Faculty Club at Institute of Clinical Dentistry on 6th July and our doors are open for everyone with interest in the topic.  
 

14:00-16:00 Presentations from invited workshop participants

Buried under, tied up, and let loose - A biophysical understanding of antimicrobial surface coatings  - Bryan Coad, University of Adelaide, Australia

An ex-vivo model to investigate host-microbe interactions in human skin - opportunities in device-related infections - Joe Latimer, University of Salford, UK

Nanotools to define cell’s microenvironment in tissue engineering strategies - Rui Domingues, University of Minho, Portugal

Safety first - the need for pharmacovigilance - Pedro Inacio, University of Helsinki, Finland

Silver antimicrobial delivery: thoughts on their efficacy and mechanisms of action - David Grainger, University of Utah, USA


16:30-17:30 Panel discussion

Future challenges in development of implantable biomaterials for the post-antibiotic era

 

The workshop is organised in collaboration with CAS Oslo.
