Personal profile

Research interests

My research group has research interests in the development, characterisation and application of multifunctional clinical nanomaterials. Of particular interest are antimicrobial and antifungal technologies.

In the course of our research we developed and characterised a novel antmicrobial technology based on chlorhexidine, which can be used in a wide range of dental and medical materials and devices. This patented technology and the associated Intellectual Property is now owned and marketed by my spin-out company, Pertinax Pharma Ltd.
