The Department of Biomaterials will be partner in a new Eurostars project: NuGel. The project aim to develop a gel formulation that allows for a more effective removal of biofilms on bone implant surfaces. This will successfully treat peri-implantitis. The treatment will involve a combination of chemo-mechanical debridement and a light device that is able to re-activate the implant surface. The system will combine bactericidal gel to enhance the cleansing effect in combination with a light device.
