Impact Acceleration Accounts (IAAs) are strategic awards provided to institutions to support knowledge exchange (KE) and impact from their previously EPSRC funded research. IAAs allow Research Organisations to respond to opportunities in flexible, responsive and creative ways, aligned to their institutional strategies.
The £35,000 of funding has been awarded to help test whether spray-drying can be used with new polymers currently being developed at the University of Nottingham. We hope that this will allow the new anti-bacterial polymers to be more easily processed, manufactured and delivered to potential customers.
Dr Dundas will also be looking to further develop the BACTIGON® polymer, previously produced here at the university by the Biomaterials team, for use in potable water systems. The aim of the project is to investigate whether we can coat O-rings and prevent biofilm build-up on them which could potentially cause infection in critical water systems.
