The main objective of Augustos project is the development and characterization of novel 3D-printed implants, which are formulated with Biofilm Inhibitors to protect against Staphylococcus spp. infections. The activity of such implants will be evaluated using different in-vitro assays. The implants presenting the most promising activity will be further analyzed in mouse models.
