European training network for development of personalized anti-infective medical devices combining printing technologies and antimicrobial functionality

Combined AMiCI & PRINT‐AID Training School 2019 - 'Training school on antimicrobial surfaces testing'

was organised in Amsterdam, The Netherlands April 8th-12th 2019. 

The Summer School was incorporated within the AMiCI COST Action 'Training school on antimicrobial surfaces testing'.

University of Amsterdam'We were very pleased to have Prof. Paul Cos (University of Antwerp, Belgium), Niels Klop and Ruud Schreurs (3D Lab, Amsterdam UMC), Prof. Tom Coenye (Ghent University, Belgium), Dr. Theofilos Papadopoulos (Western Macedonia University of applied sciences, Greece), Dr. Simone Schulte (Evonik, Germany) and Prof. Matthew Fields (Center for Biofilm Engineering, Montana State University, USA) as key note speakers during the training school', says Dr. Martijn Riool, the Summer School organizer and PRINT-AID member.

The Training school took a 3-day practical course with supporting lectures. Additionally, a Master class was organised. The experimental program at the Amsterdam UMC at the University of Amsterdam aimed at antimicrobial activity testing (MIC/MBC, JIS, agar diffusion, biofilms etc.), antimicrobial resistance, and immune responses (histology, microscopy etc.). The students were able to bring their own samples for testing too!

PRINT-AID was very excited about our shared programme and the opportunity to network with the COST action in Amsterdam
