Project description

The hypothesis is that "different" biofilms will grow on a surface from a mixed bacteria population in sea water. This project will create a range of different surface chemistries and structures to systematically explore the rate and type of biofilm growth from a mixed population. The surfaces will encompass producing a range of polymeric systems from hydrophillic to hydrophobic properties on substrates with a focus on the characterisaton of the biofilms that form.

Note: You need to register interest in projects from different supervisors (not a number of projects with the one supervisor).
You must also contact each supervisor directly to discuss both the project details and your suitability to undertake the project.
