    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Antimicrobial surfaces; mesoporous titania; elastin-like polypeptide; antimicrobial peptide; antibiotic delivery;

    Abstract : Over the past decades there has been a significant increase in the diversity and function of biomaterials. Today, medical practices utilize a large number of biomaterials in the form of medical devices and implants. However, one major obstacle that limits the efficiency of biomaterials is their susceptibility to develop infection. READ MORE
