Antimicrobial coatings as weapon against infectious diseases


27.06.2017 - 15:30 to 16:00



HealthCare Associated Infections (HAI) are a serious problem to human health, especially now that antibiotics are becoming less effective. Although antimicrobial coatings are commercially available, they haven’t found their way into healthcare environments yet. In the COST Action AMiCl research project, institutes, companies and policymakers from 29 countries joined forces to investigate antimicrobial coatings in real life, and to find out whether they can become a potential weapon against HAI and Antimicrobial Resistance.
