Our lab is active in research and development of novel materials-based healthcare solutions. We thrive to understand, characterise and steer interactions of bio-molecules, bacteria and human cells at materials surfaces.
We combine material and biological science for novel solutions through steering the properties and nature of the biointerface. With this we provide key contributions to novel antifouling, antibacterial and functional/ biocompatible materials for therapeutic and diagnostic use, such as implants, wound healing materials, sensors.
Our lab is a prime entry point for industry by providing cutting edge research expertise in the field of biomedical technology.
