EU Network “HyMedPoly” Special Symposium at ESB 2018

HyMedPoly Gruppe

The special symposium “Drug-free antibacterial hybrid biopolymers for medical applications” (LINK: ) of the EU ETN Network HyMedPoly (“Drug-Free Antibacterial Hybrid Biopolymers for Medical Applications”) (LINK: ) took place on 11 September 2018 in the framework of the 29th Annual Conference of the European Society for Biomaterials (ESB), (LINK: ) held in Maastricht, Netherlands. The symposium was chaired by the Network coordinators Prof. Ipsita Roy (University of Westminster, UK) and Prof. Xiang Zhang (Lucideon, UK). Prof. Boccaccini was one of the keynote speakers of the symposium, he presented the lecture: “Antibacterial Inorganic Biomaterials”. All doctoral students in the project presented posters summarizing their latest results. HyMedPoly aims to develop new therapies based on biomedical drug-free antibacterial polymers and inorganic materials for drug-free antibacterial hybrid biopolymers for treating infections.
