Objective 2

Development of technology for the vehiculization and delivery of antimicrobial agents by advanced materials

The functionalization of natural polymers allows an improvement of their structural diversity and modifies their mechanical and structural properties, and therefore, enhances the variety of potential applications. One of the most important challenges at the biotechnological level is the obtaining of functionalized biocompatible materials, which allow the immobilization of proteins or other molecules with antimicrobial activity, for their use in biomedicine, with the aim of prevent and treat microbial infections.
