Luminescent Surfaces to Kill or Detect Bacteria

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently reported that ‘Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) represents a growing threat to global public health and security’. At least 50000 annual deaths, across Europe and the US alone, are due to antimicrobial-resistant infections. As proposed by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), four core actions are needed to prevent AMR : first, the prevention of infections and the spread of resistance ; second, tracking and gathering data on antibiotic-resistant infections ; third, improving antibiotic prescribing practices and use ; and lastly, developing new drugs and diagnostic tests. In this work two different strategies will be investigated that follow two of the four core actions proposed by the CDC : first, by the development and characterization of a sensor for bacterial detection ; secondly, by the study and characterization of new antibacterial materials as repelling films or killing bacteria surfaces, to prevent biofilm-associated infections.
