Science Public Lecture 

Speaker: Professor Morgan Alexander

Title: Biomaterials discovery: the journey to clinical application of a novel urinary catheter

Abstract: In this talk Professor Alexander will tell the story of his teams discovery of a novel class of biomaterials resistant to bacterial colonisation and biofilm formation from the conception of the initial idea, through to them reaching the clinic and very recent generation of early efficacy results. In the talk Professor Alexander will aim to highlight aspects of the high throughput discovery approach they took, the lessons that can be learned about the many challenges of taking candidate biomaterials from the lab to the clinic.

Date and time: Thursday 18th February 6-7pm
