The Biomaterials stand at the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition
With three activities available to engage people to learn about biofilms and the biomaterials the University of Nottingham has developed to combat them, everyone has been working hard and enjoying themselves at the event.
Participants have been able to race against each other to clear tubes with sticky biofilms of bacteria, dip real catheters into a bowl of “bacteria” and see how much sticks, as well as taking part in our live experiment seeing how much bacteria transfers from our hands during common greetings such as a handshake and high five.
You can read more about the research through the article links below, or listening to an interview with Dr Kim Hardie on BBC Health Check. You can also see our animations explaining more about biofilms and the applications of this research on our Royal Society page.
