Open Innovation Hub for Antimicrobial Surfaces
Creating a cross-disciplinary research hub to deliver antimicrobial innovation with real impact.
The Open Innovation Hub is partnered with the Infection Innovation Consortium (iiCON), creating specialist, commercially sustainable research platforms for infectious disease therapeutics in North West England. The need for infectious disease control remains high in the UK and internationally, and this project will transform product discovery and development, helping products go from lab to patients faster, cheaper and in more effective formats.
Professor Rasmita Raval is the Director of the Open Innovation Hub for Antimicrobial Sciences.
The Open Innovation Hub team is made up of experts with a range of backgrounds in life and physical sciences. Here you can find out more about our researchers and their fields of expertise.
We work with companies of all sizes from SMEs to multinationals. We can offer surface, materials and microbiological analysis on a contract basis as well as partnering on grant funded projects.
The Hub is focused on designing and engineering a new generation of intelligent surfaces and materials that are capable of inhibiting bacterial, viral, and fungal attachment and proliferation.
