Cenova joins students at Linköping University in research project on treating wound infection

Published On: 4 October, 2019

During 2019 Cenova will join the LiU iGEM project on how to treat wound infections with antimicrobial agents in order to prevent antibiotic resistance. Cenova works close to many research entities in Sweden and joining the LiU iGEM project fits Cenova well. The project will focus on preventing wound infections by using antimicrobial agents. The increase of antibiotic resistance is a growing problem that needs to be addressed. By using antimicrobial agents antibiotics can either be replaced or be used to a lesser extent with  a bandage that is also cost-effective and environmentally friendly. LiU iGEM’s goal is to create an antimicrobial bandage that aims to reach many of WHO’s Sustainable Development goals in order to ensure good health and environment for future generations.
