Institute of Biomaterials awarded €900,000 EU project to train PhD researchers to develop antibacterial medical materials

As part of the €3.9m (£2.8m) HyMedPoly project the Institute of Biomaterials at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg (Head: Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Aldo R. Boccaccini) has been awarded a grant of € 924,782 funded by the European Commission to train PhD researchers for the development of drug-free antibacterial materials used for medical applications, such as wound care and implants. HyMedPoly will offer a joint training programme at world class academic and industrial institutes, combining technical knowledge with hands-on training in state-of-the-art research projects related to key issues that determine the future therapies of antibacterial materials. The five doctoral positions based at the Institute of Biomaterials have been advertised. For more information please read the complete press release.
