Micro and nano-engineered surfaces for the prevention of microbial adhesion and biofouling

This research project will develop new technologies that will overcome the limitation of micro and nanotechnologies to small areas and flat surfaces.

Lead organisation(s):

Monash University

Project type:
In progress

Many antimicrobial-resistant microbes are transmitted via high-touch surfaces. The 2 main objectives of this project are to:

  1. to engineer micro- and nano-surfaces with enhanced anti-microbial properties
  2. develop new technologies to include such functional micro and nano-surfaces on ‘real-life’ objects.
This project has been running for 1 year.
