Molecular Design of Polymers for Biomedical Applications

Project description

Improved quality of life thanks to innovative polymers for biomedical applications

The EU-funded MEDIPOL project is an integrated 4-year programme of knowledge transfer and networking, between six partners with complementary expertise, to design and develop new polymer-based materials for advanced biomedical applications, targeting soft tissues, especially the eye and dermal wounds. There are clear similarities between ocular and dermal sites; understanding these analogies facilitates the design of, for example, corneal bandages, ophthalmic dry eye therapies and effective burn and wound dressings with increased effectiveness. MEDIPOL's knowledge transfer programme will train 49 professionals as future leaders in academia and industry. The specific major problems being targeted relate to vision and mobility, increasingly critical issues worldwide in healthcare systems that have the task of managing the socio-economic aspects of ageing populations.
