A pH-Responsive Bionanohybrid Nanofibrous Wound Dressing

Project description

Taking smart wound dressings to the market

Advanced wound dressings that do not act merely as barriers but promote wound healing are emerging in the market. The EU-funded SNFWD project is working on smart wound dressings based on nanofibres that mimic the natural extracellular matrix of human tissues and can deliver drugs at the same time, further enhancing wound healing. Researchers will incorporate a calcium phosphate coating on the surface of nanofibres to accommodate electrostatic interactions with drugs, and a synthetic acidification strategy for controlled drug release. This approach can be industrially adapted, overcoming current challenges associated with the fabrication of smart wound dressings.
