Development of a new generation of bioengineered bandages

Project description

Skin-like bandages

According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 180 000 people die each year from burns. Survival from the initial event has improved but subsequent infections can develop in exposed areas, a leading cause of morbidity, particularly in the case of severe skin damage. With the support of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme, PHAS is working to improve patient healing, which in turn improves hospitalisation costs and duration. Scientists are developing a bioactive skin-like bandage that can cope with the burden of infections and enhance wound repair. In parallel, they are using metagenomics techniques complemented with high-tech spectrometry to identify the microorganisms responsible for infections.
