Bioactive ceramic coatings with antimicrobial properties to increase orthopaedic implant longevity


About This PhD Project

Project Description

Proposed Training:
An HDR will develop extensive skills in biomaterials processing and characterisation techniques, to develop new ceramic coatings with antimicrobial properties. Osseointegration and Peter Brehm will provide industry direction and associated training for the development, design, production, and commercialisation of medical implants.

Proposed Outcomes:
We will develop a family of ceramic coatings for orthopaedic implants, featuring osteogenic and antimicrobial properties coupled with high bonding strength to prevent premature implant failure. This will reduce the costs associated with revision surgery and greatly improve the recipients' long-term quality of life.
