Trilateral Research Cooperation
Electrospun Polymer nonwovens as highly functional substrates for advanced applications in waste water treatment and medical application
Idea and concept:
The topic of this trilateral research project of an international interdisciplinary research team is the investigation of electrospun polymer nanofiber nonwovens as functional carriers for biological agents (bacteria and drugs). The motivation for these investigations is the basic understanding of the active role of electrospun polymer nanofiber nonwovens as carriers for biological agents and probing of these results for solutions for actual related problems. The expected outcome of this project will be an answer to the question of whether electrospun polymer nonwovens as carriers for biologically active agents will provide significant advantages or not. This answer will be verified on concrete applications of waste water treatment and therapy for parasite diseases.
