About the project:             

Wound infections are very common and can have serious local and systemic complications, especially if associated with other patient’s condition, like diabetic foot, pressure ulcers or burns. Spreading of antibiotic resistance enhances the problem, especially in the case of staphylococci (MRSA). To address this issue we propose to develop a new generation of wound dressing functionalized with patented bacteriolytic enzyme and based on modern biomaterials, like hydrogels and nanofibers. This multidisciplinary project, carried out in collaboration with scientific and commercial partners, will give a great opportunity to introduce young researchers to various scientific areas and to train them in commercial aspects of project results implementation.


This project is carried out within the TEAM TECH programme of the Foundation for Polish Science co-financed by the European Union under the European Regional Development Fund.
