Project Description

Antimicrobial coating industry is rapidly growing. This is to prevent the serious problems caused by bacterial adhesion and subsequent biofilm formation on the surfaces of many devices. In this project, we aim to develop silver-free and biocompatible metal-organic frameworks nanomaterial coating loaded with drugs for significantly improved antibacterial efficacy.

To undertake this research, we are seeking a highly motivated candidate with established hands-on experience in antibacterial and surface science. Applications are particularly welcome from candidates with organic chemistry research experience.
