Antibiotic functionalised polymers reduce bacterial biofilm and bioburden in a simulated infection of the cornea

Today online a new advanced access article is online at Biomaterials Science,  launched following our recent collaboration with the team at the University of Sheffield. This paper shows the efficacy of our recent highly branched polymer materials to disturb or prevent the formation of bacterial biofilms.
