STSM: Fabrication of electrospun antimicrobial nanofibers based on phytochemicals

STSM asignment description: The objective of this STSM is the fabrication of phytochemical based antimicrobial nanofibers via electrospinning which may find application in medical devices for the purpose of infection prevention and control. Through collaboration with TÜBİTAK MRC and Zurich University, it is planned to perform the nanofabrication studies and some of the preliminary morphological characterisations at the Zurich University, and then to done the

STSM: Evaluating the anti-biofilm activity of surfaces composed of ZnO/Ag heterostructures

STSM completed: ZnO/Ag heterostructures are expected to exhibit UVA-induced photocatalytic effect which are due to the presence of ZnO and magnified by the presence of Ag nanoparticles. While these surfaces have been shown to be effective against planktonic bacteria, their action against biofilms is still unknown. As such, the objective of this STSM is to assess the efficacy of ZnO/Ag surfaces against mono- or multi-species

Applications for Short Term Scientific Missions are opened till March 25th

Purpose of a Short-Term Scientific Mission STSM facilitates Researchers from COST Countries participating in COST Action [CA 15114] to go to an institution, organisation or research centre in another participating COST Country to foster collaboration and to perform empirical research. Participation of “Early Career Investigators” (ECI) in STSM is particularly encouraged. An applicant can be considered as being an ECI when the time that has
